From the past few years, Didi Bahini Samaj Victoria (DBSV) has been organising mother’s day dinner with an aim to promote “self-love, self-care, self believe and self-respect” for Nepalese migrant women living in Victoria.
Like last year, over 70 beautiful strong ladies came together to celebrate motherhood. It was a huge success not just in terms of crowd, but also in terms of support, strength and experience shared among each other.
During the program, DBSV president Jamuna Parajuli strongly urged women by asking to “be you sometimes which is very important and remember do not dim your lights to fit in others shine bright’’. One of the senior mothers also shared her valuable insight on life: “Don’t give the remote of your life to other’s hand , control your own life’s remote”.
The program also included some gift hampers, poems reading and singing on motherhood celebration. Ladies from 18 to 70 years old enjoyed the event thoroughly with all smiles and laughter throughout the evening. The dinner was organised at Crown Melbourne on 9th May 2019.
This year Didi Bahini Samaj Victoria has changed its modalities to raise the awareness about Gender-based violence through the use of social media. I would like to thanks everyone from the bottom of my heart who have participated in the campaign.
