“Taem ol woman oli kam andap bigwan long ol difren level blong societi, hemi no mini se oli puttem doan ol man.”


This year we asked communities throughout Vanuatu to organise their own IWD celebration, using the 2020 theme of What can YOU do to promote gender equality?” This video shows the kind of productive discussions that can happen when all are invited to collaborate and dialogue. Our focus for this discussion was “The rise of women does not equal the fall of men”.

Facilitated by Relvie Poilapa, World Vision Vanuatu and gender equality activist, the panelists included:

  • Caretaker Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ralph Regenvanu
  • Pastor Allan Nafuki, Chairman of Vanuatu Christian Council
  • Wilson Toa, country manager of Balance of Power
  • Pallan Abraham, World Vision
