Impact of the Fiji Girls on PPSEAWA

Release Date: 
11 October 2014

The opportunity to address a global audience is rare for young girls. One of PPSEAWA’s goals is to foster leadership skills by providing more non-formal educational and public speaking opportunities.  One of the young girl guides who spoke at the International Conference in Fiji in August 2013 said: “I would like to say that speaking at the PPSEAWA conference was enlightening and a wonderful experience too. I still have the video of my speech from that day too!! My parents and I would also like for you to convey our heart full gratitude.”

Fiji Girls Speak Out

Release Date: 
11 October 2014

As a member of the Working Group on Girls (WGG), and its Girls Against Violence taskforce, I have participated in several side events to the Commission on the Status of Women sessions (CSW) at the UN in New York, where girls were given the opportunity to speak out publicly about their lives. The topic is always “Are We Doing Enough for Girls?”

So, I thought, “Why not bring such an event to Fiji?”
