Mrs Nishi Puri has been chosen to lead GOPIO Canberra women’s council as the current chair.
GOPIO Women’s council has been in an integral part of GOPIO International GOPIO, and GOPIO International encourages all chapters to have an active women’s council. GOPIO Canberra Women’s Council was formed to help with issues relating to and affecting women. It has been created to assist women who deal with everyday problems from domestic violence, language barriers, financial ignorance, legal aid, health issues, and general well being, to just having somebody to reach out to. Apart from this women’s council organizes many cultural events, such as a picnic in the park, etc.
We have associations with different community organizations that help promote the awareness of domestic violence within all the communities as well as the White Ribbon Canberra committee. Events that are planned for the year include a seminar on Women’s health and well being.
