We Focus On
Through the Creating a Movement to End Violence Against Women in Papua New Guinea Pilot Project (SASA! Together), PSI Papua New Guinea is working with more than 380 community activists in four communities to shift community norms from acceptance and perpetuating violence against women to norms that actively work to prevent violence against women and support survivors. SASA! Together aims to address the root cause of violence against women: the power imbalance between men and women at both the individual and community levels—and in doing so, spark community-wide transformational change.
