Happy International Women’s Day!
Pacific Peoples’ Partnership is blessed to work with so many amazing women! We are inspired daily by all that they do for our collective wellbeing, for their families, friends, and communities. In this edition of Pasifik Currents, we are delighted to introduce a few of these powerful trailblazers and changemakers and showcase their inspirational work and accomplishments.
Join us in celebrating Ofa from Tonga who is delivering remote counseling clinics, and our Pacific Resilience fund advisory council members including Méré (Vanuatu), Jennifer (Papua New Guinea), Kianna (Marshall Islands), Theresa (Samoa), and Maureen (Fiji) and get the latest news on the projects they are championing from supporting women businesses through to food security, health and safety, and promoting life skills-based upon traditional knowledge and practices.
PPP is also pleased to announce that we are co-hosting a global virtual summit on reducing gender-based violence, healing, and empowerment, alongside CIRCLE and SAGE (University of Victoria) on March 25th, 2021 14:00-18:00 PDT/ March 26th, 2021 10:00 – 14:00 Tonga. This will be presented in collaboration with Tonga-based Women and Children Crisis Center, with special presentations from Moose Hide Campaign, breakout groups, and more. Participation in this summit is by invitation or application only. We are grateful to the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives for supporting this program. Email Agnieszka at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are also thrilled to provide a teaser regarding the Stories of Resilience Indigenous and South Pacific youth program. Plus updates on our work and activities. Our board, staff, and key volunteers will be engaging in strategic planning processes that will guide our work through to 2030 in alignment with the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
