We at SHAMSHIR made an everlasting impact on the society with our MINI ME Project.

Our modern awareness of abuse and assault with children is more than likely because of the far increased communication means we have available on top of what occurs in group dynamics – but still seen as a taboo topic.  It is quite possible it rarely comes to the fore in smaller groups, be it at political parliamentary levels, in school grounds or just in smaller communities where the dog eat dog syndrome can come to the fore.

For certain the use of the internet and associated communication modes has seen assault occur possibly even more and it does seem a shame that where we have moderators of various forums, they too can become part of the problem by their reluctance to stamp it out.

SHAMSHIR’s MINI ME Project emphasise the need of creating awareness primarily among the children and also enlightening the audience about the various legalities related to the issue. Believing it important for the law enforcement agencies to take pre-emptive action to prevent the crimes like sexual assault. We aim to take various actions that the various agencies can take against to avoid such social problems from happening.

SHAMSHIR initiated a new a mission to acknowledge and share the extraordinary stories of extra extraordinary women around us which can inspire us all to make a bigger impact – Women of Wondrous Worth (formally known as Women Of the World).

WOW, is a dream come true that designs the social humanitarian network of tomorrow to bring women together around great causes and make those unimaginable, yet measurable changes, with a belief in empowering beautiful and strong women, to stand up for their own and others dreams and make them become reality through collaboration and empathy.

WOW has created a platform that has allowed many other to have their voices and stories heard, having women help each other succeed. The WOW event held in South Australia are evenings of celebration to mark the International’s Women Day, with an aim to be inspired by ordinary women doing extraordinary things.
