Samoa – White Ribbon Day planning for 2011

Police and NGO’s parade together

White Ribbon Day in Samoa in 2010 was a great success. In 2011 they are again working with other agencies in a range of activities, but with a strong local theme.

In 2010 the Prime Minister spoke strongly of the need for everyone to take responsibility for dealing with family violence and he extolled the leaders in the community to take up the call.

About 300 people marched to the Government building, representing police, local rugby players, schools, NGO’s and government departments.

PPDVP looks forward to seeing the results of all the hard work again this year.
