Solomon Islands

YOU, ME STAN TUGEDA FO ENDIM VAELENS

Government departments, UN agencies and organisations across Solomon islands have come together to raise awareness of causes and consequences of all forms of gender-based violence, and the urgent need for action to help end the violence once and for all. Below you’ll find a list of events and activities taking place across the country during the campaign. We have done our best to collect as many of them as possible, but it is by no means exhaustive. Unless otherwise indicated, all these events and activities are FREE.

New events and details are being added all the time, so please check back regularly before and during the campaign.
