On Saturday 21st of July 2018, Legal Associates worked hand in hand with Woman Care Trust (“WCT”) for their annual event, Ladies Cultural Night. WCT is a non-profit charitable trust that was established in 2014, to support Indian/ Punjabi women and other new immigrant settlers in New Zealand.
WCT organises and conducts free classes to teach English and computer skills to women and men at their learning centre. Further, the organisation also works to provide other free services such as fitness, stitching, knitting and to learn cultural folk dances of Punjab. To elevate more social networking skills, and to encourage women to interact more, WCT organises bus trips to explore NZ.
The organisation also works to maintain their heritage, language and culture within young children from ages 0- 5 years old, teaching language and creating awareness of their heritage. Since the organisation began, it has grown to reach 500 members who have joined WCT in the span of just 3 years.
Every year WCT organises an annual cultural event, where women of the community come together to put on various types of performances, giving the audience a taste of Punjabi culture and dance. With the huge success of the cultural event in 2016 and 2017, WCT came to the Vodafone Event Centre for the 3rd time this year and put on another outstanding event.
We are proud to work with this wonderful organisation, and to be a helping hand in creating awareness of the Indian/ Punjabi culture, and more importantly for the dedication WCT manifests in the lives of Women in this community.
