Empowering Women

Melanesian Women Today aims to empower women so they can reach their full potential. Women are half the population and no country can succeed by putting down half the population. Women need education, training, encouragement, political advocacy, and a voice. MWT is dedicated to empowering women to lead the fullest life possible.

In 2014 MWT partnered with other organizations to run a week long Women's Conference hosted in Mele Village. The conference included a variety of topics aimed at increasing the leadership potential of women in Vanuatu. 

Topics included:

  • Leadership in the community
  • Government structure and a tour of Parliment
  • Family Budgeting and banking
  • Abuse
  • Mental Health
  • Literacy
  • omen Role Models
