As a volunteer organisation that empowers women, the Women's Federation for World Peace Australia works to provide women worldwide with the knowledge, tools and support needed to create peace within their families, their communities, our nations and our world.
how this event started
WFWP Australia has undertaken practical service projects within the Oceania Island nations since 2003. At the time these included sending rechargeable lights, books and sewing machines to support remote villages in Tanna, Vanuatu, and Honiara, Solomon Islands.
To raise funds for these projects, initial walk-a-thons were organised and funds raised allowed with time the initiation of bigger projects such as the Pasifika Scholarship and the Pasifika Microcredit initiative.
With the support of WFWP Japan, WFWP Australia contributed to the building and opening of the SunHak Primary School in Honiara, Solomon Islands, and to the creation of a WFWP Solomon Islands Chapter. Now this Chapter is spearheading the expansion of the school and its Women's Sewing Centre.
With the need to further support these projects, WFWP Australia has partnered with the United Pasifika Council of Victoria to deliver a larger scale festival with the aim to celebrate Pasifika Cultures and raise funds for its humanitarian projects.
Join us in 2020 and be part of the change we are making in the Pacific Islands.
