Shakti Migrant Community Education Centre Inc. (formerly the Asian and African Women Community Education Centre) has its origins in the Shakti Asian Women's Support Group set up in 1995 by migrant women in New Zealand . The Centre was established with the ideology of providing a safe and culturally appropriate environment for Ethnic Women to meet and acquire Life Skills. Under the Shakti Community Council Inc (which replaced the Trust) the Centre has grown to accommodate the wider migrant and refugee community.
Shakti Migrant Community Education Centre conducts Road Safety and Practical Driving programmes sponsored by the LTSA and Road Safety Trust for the benefit of the Ethnic Community, particularly Ethnic Women. The centre also holds English language classes and self-employment programmes for women and families.
We aim to provide quality Life Skills Education, Cross-cultural Understanding and Employment & Training programmes that assist the social, cultural and economic growth of the Ethnic Community towards integrating within mainstream New Zealand.
