We are the Dawoodi Bohra community of Auckland
The Dawoodi Bohra Community of Auckland consists of approximately 115 families, hailing from all corners of the world. The community continues to grow as families make their way to New Zealand in search of fruitful opportunities and better educational prospects.
The government’s welcoming immigration policy of 1986 made it possible for Bohras to settle in this country of scenic and serene vistas. The families living here are proud citizens who have called New Zealand home for the past 30 years. Many Bohra men and women are an active part of the New Zealand workforce while others run their own businesses.
The Bohras in Auckland congregate at the community hall known as ‘Vajihi Markaz’ in Henderson and welcome their fellow citizens to join them in celebrations on important national days.
Environmental conservation and charitable efforts are the most significant areas in which the community has been active for the past few years.
Embracing the ‘Kiwi Way of Life’, the Bohras also make sure to benefit from the beautiful and unique wilderness that New Zealand has to offer. Communal activities include regular excursions and outdoor sporting events as well as picnics.
The Dawoodi Bohra community is proud to reside in the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ and to be part of a rich and diverse country like New Zealand.
