Halima Mohamed | Members Statement

Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (09:51:27): I have had the pleasure of meeting Victorian Honour Roll of Women 2008 award recipient Ms Halima Mohamed, who has been a humanitarian and community activist for nearly 30 years. Halima, a celebrated politician and community leader in her homeland, has led initiatives such as the African Women’s Social Enterprise in partnership with a number of organisations before establishing Skilling Employment and Aid Enterprises Australia Inc. in partnership with Green Collect in Yarraville. Women like Halima have a tremendous support system and serve as a beacon of light for all women who may be enduring a difficult time. I was delighted to meet the newest graduates of the African-Australian young women’s leadership program that Halima organised.
