Shakti's mission is to support migrant and refugee women, youth, and families in living empowered and safe lives free from all forms of violence. We endeavour to help our communities overcome the barriers that come with migration and to eliminate intergenerational forms of cultural oppression. Founded by and for ethnic women, Shakti is dedicated to promoting and protecting human rights and advocating for social change.

Shakti's services include crisis intervention, emergency pick-up, counselling, legal advocacy, and refuge accomodation for survivors of family violence and their children. Every year, Shakti engages with thousands of women, including individuals of Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Malay, Cambodian, Korean, Indian, Fiji Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Iranian, Iraqi, and Nigerian origin. We will continue to advocate for New Zealand's growing migrant and refugee community.

More about us

We are a culturally specialist organisation that endeavors to end family violence in migrant and refugee communities. For and by ethnic women, our staff reflects the ethnicities and languages of the communities we serve. Our mission is to ensure that every woman, youth, and child can live a healthy, happy, and safe life in New Zealand.

    Unable to attend the KPMG Christmas function (Wgtn 20 November) where Shakti Refuge is the charity of choice. I would prefer not to receive on-going information mail or requests though. Thank you.
