Strong Mind, Strong Health, Strong Voice

 

We focus on contemporary issues that are affecting the well-being and lifestyle of women, girls, and families in the Melanesian region of the South Pacific. We address the effects of the global economic crisis on the livelihood of women and their children, particularly on serious gender specific consequences.

While women (and men) in most Melanesian countries are vulnerable to increased risk of poverty and hardship, gender susceptibility to negative impacts are especially at high risk. Issues such as the impact of climate change, the pre-existing high infant mortality rates, gender disparity on education, equity, political participation, and women’s economic empowerment are just some of the many issues that we help improve.

Vision

A Pacific region where every Woman, Girl and Child in their respective communities, leads a productive healthy, and fulfilling life.
