For over fourteen years, Samoa Victim Support Group has advocated for the rights of the most vulnerable in our local Samoan communities. SVSG became the voice for the voiceless in the hope that vulnerable communities would be heard.
Today, the role has changed. SVSG’s fight to eliminate violence against women and girls is giving you the platform to be a voice for change.
A Positive Movement born from the ashes of physical and sexual abuse; the Sisters of Hope (female survivors of gender based violence cared for at the Campus of Hope) wants you to join them as they say no to a life that should have destroyed them. In situations where brave and courageous girls had once lost their voices, the message is now loud and clear – “if We Can, You Can too”.What once used to silence them is now the very passion behind their words as they speak out; and they want you to join them.
Have you overcome something in life that used to keep you silent? Have you made some positive changes in your life that would give hope to others? Have you got a message that you want to share? If this is you, then join us.
According to the SVSG President Siliniu Lina Chang, “it is SVSG’s belief that change originates from the minds and the voices of a community. A community that gives hope to those who are without. A community that doesn’t leave each other behind. The Positve Movement is the platform to hear your voices.”
SVSG will take the Positive Movement to our villages, our churches, our schools and the local community at large. We will spread the Positive Movement further to our Pacific region and beyond to the outside world through the social media.
So join us in the Positive Movement, where TOGETHER, we will say no to violence, no to past troubles, no to past hurts, and scream out YES to lives of positivity. Be the change that you want someone else to see. Lift your voice and join us in the Positive Movement because the Sisters of Hope believe that “if We Can, You Can too”.
