Samoa to host global meeting

The Samoa Victim Support Group (S.V.S.G.) will host the Initial Meeting for some of the networks of the MenEngage Global Alliance from 21 – 25 January 2019 at the Travellers Point Hotel, Apia.

The Meeting is coordinated by the Centro Rural Joven Vida (C.E.R.U.J.O.V.I.), a non-profit organization based in Spain.  

It will be attended by representatives from five partner organisations for the Men & Boys Engage Project, such as the Emancipator in Netherlands, the Youth First in Madagascar, the Foundation for Innovative Social Development in Sri Lanka, the Centre for Health and Social Justice in India and Samoa Victim Support Group, Samoa.

C.E.R.U.J.O.V.I. is a center of rural development, which works on comprehensive programmes for the development of rural communities. It also works in all the sectors of the population, especially those who are more disadvantaged, such as the youth, children, women and elderly.

S.V.S.G’s involvement with the Men & Boys Engage Project is through its youth sub-group, the SVSG (Juniors), whose participants will join the MenEngage Global Alliance in being empowered through capacity building and fostering network with other partners to the Project.  

By building on the capacity of its youth and fostering youth relationship with international partner organsiations, this is all part of S.V.S.G.’s succession plans as the Group look towards its youth sub-group, the SVSG (Junior) to take on the future direction of S.V.S.G..

Following the Project’s Initial Meeting in Samoa, there will be a Seminar in New Delhi India in March 2019 and a Study Tour in Amsterdam Netherlands in May.
