Last week CARE Vanuatu celebrated the 12 month journey and graduation of young women leaders at Le Lagon, Port Vila. These young women are part of CARE Vanuatu’s Young Women’s Leadership Program.

With support from the Australian Government, these 20 young women leaders have been taking it one step at a time on a journey to discovering something that will make a lifelong difference – realising their potential.

This 12-month pilot program helps to promote and develop leadership andaction among young women for the promotion of gender quality and the elimination of violence against women and girls (EVAWG) in Vanuatu.

“This program helps build my capacity as a young woman leader in my own community,” says Guilain Nauni, a young woman leader. “It helps motivate me to pursue my goals in life and learn new things.”
