Extended focus from campaigns for elimination to primary prevention of violence against women and girls has received support by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Government of Australia (DFAT) and UN Women with a four-year program on Strengthening Peaceful Villages approved and implemented in late 2017. Strengthening Peaceful Villages (SPV 2017-2021) is a primary prevention programme working with communities on south Tarawa to mobilise them to address domestic violence in their own communities. This is a 4 year programme working with Village Activist (VAs) using the SASA Approach (evidence based community mobilization approach to end violence against women and girls). This project is technically and financially funded by UN Women.
