Empowering women

The Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s Blossom Project tackles critical issues like domestic violence, sexual abuse and teen pregnancy in Vanuatu. 

Through collaboration with church leaders, students and the government, ADRA promotes open discussions on gender norms and family roles. They’re pioneering wellness centres on Efate, Santo and Tanna islands, offering safe spaces and counselling services.

According to Vanuatu’s Daily Post, ADRA recently joined forces with the Vanuatu Skills Partnership to run family life training on Malekula Island. Blossom Project officer at ADRA Vanuatu, Ludovic Kelly, told the Daily Post there is a need for families to participate in such training sessions as they help to reduce social problems in the community.
