Ioane Burese
Wednesday, December 05, 2012

THE Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni will visit Tavualevu Village in Ba Province and Vanuakula Village in Tavua today.

This visit is part of the awareness of the 16 Days of Activism and the Zero Tolerance Violence Free Community (ZTVFC) Program.

According to a government statement, Dr Luveni will present a certificate of commitment to Vanuakula Village for its commitment to the zero tolerance violence-free program while Tavualevu Village will be presented with a certificate of declaration. The ministerial visit will also facilitate discussions for the two communities to seek government assistance on socio-economic issues pertaining to their livelihood.

Launched in 2008 by the Ministry of Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation, the Zero Tolerance Violence Free Community (ZTVFC) Campaign is receiving a good support from communities that want to join the government in eliminating violence against women and children.

Last year, 15 communities joined the ministry's campaign to stop violence against women.
