Kiribati Family Violence Prevention Training Programme

The Kiribati framework Boutokaan Te Mweeraoi is based on Kiribati values and cultural practices to help Kiribati people build healthier families free from family violence. The Nga Vaka o Kaiga Tapu programme is the centrepiece of the Pasefika Proud initiative which aims to prevent family violence among Pacific communities.

This is a FREE programme which has been designed to be interactive and uses te maroro/talanoa as a way for attendees to share knowledge & experiences of how their culture can be used to protect and strengthen Kiribati families.

The training is delivered in Kiribati and English languages.

Entry is open to practitioners and community leaders, including community members who may engage with Kiribati families to prevent family violence.

The programme will take place over 3 days:

Thursday 8 & Friday 9 April: 6pm - 9pm

Saturday 10 April: 9am - 4pm

Address: 13 Ronwood Avenue, Manukau

Facilitated by Lydia Teatao & Tikutaake Teiwaki
