Consultations to review the Community Sector Plan 2016 – 2021 of the Ministry of Women, Community and Social Development included the recognition of two non governmental organisations and two communities in the Community Development Sector Award Presentation.
Samoa Victim Support Group received the Special Award for Community Social Protection, in recognition of outstanding performance and commitment through inclusive Community Social Protection Programs targeting vulnerable populations.
The award came as the Group near its 14th years of service to the people of Samoa, and we are grateful.
According to the SVSG President Siliniu Lina Chang, “we are very grateful to the Ministry for appreciating our work. Glory be to God for trusting us to take His work further.”
As servants, SVSG’s governing body, the executive committee, staff, volunteers, the SVSG village representatives and the SVSG Juniors, have been working hard to serve our community in need. It is for this reason why SVSG is humbled by the award, as it recognizes SVSG’s community protection role, which to us, is all about God’s work.
Thank you so much Afamasaga Faauiga Mulitalo, Chief Executive Officer of the Ministry for engaging the community sector stakeholders in this review. As a sector partner, the review highlights an inclusive approach for an inclusive community development.
As a non-governmental organization, the award highlights a continuous transformation in SVSG and its work due to the indentified need to support our communities, as much as the changes in the communities as we’ve come to know them inclusively, as families as per SVSG’s motto that:
We support, we help, we care, WE ARE YOUR FAMILY!
SVSG will continue to do what its passionate about; helping and serving the most vulnerable in our community, while fostering a collaborative working relationship with the Ministry.
