Kylie Humble from ADRA shares, “Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, the Blossom Project is now in its seventh year of implementation! The project has impacted the lives of thousands of people in Vanuatu, supporting those affected by gender-based violence, addressing cultural gender norms through high school education programs, and providing counselling and life skills training to people serving sentences for offences related to sexual and gender-based violence.
Last year, a formal evaluation of the project was carried out and confirmed the positive changes that is being made in the many lives of those who have interacted with the project and its activities. The evaluation also provided very clear recommendations on what the project should look like moving forward, and one of the key recommendations was that the project should expand its sphere of operation beyond Port Vila and out into the islands. Currently, a design process is underway in Vanuatu with the aim to launch a new phase of the Blossom Project by 1st July 2023.”
We are so thrilled that Adventist Women Australia has been able to support this amazing ministry in Vanuatu. Thank you.
