Dating is a rite of passage that most young people will experience. But what is it like to date in Vanuatu, especially when romantic relationships are not encouraged?

What happens if/when you do end up dating and how do you navigate the unrealistic expectations and unwanted pressure from your family and community?

Join four young women as they discuss this and explore how people develop and maintain romantic relationships in a typical situation in Vanuatu and how our community needs to re-define what intimacy is and what healthy relationships look like.

We would love for you to join us, and to ensure a safe space the doors will be closed at 4pm at

Alliance Française de Port-Vila for the start of the discussion.
