 The NRL Tonga uses sport as a vehicle to address gender inequalities and raise awareness among young people about the impact of gender violence among different communities, making NRL Tonga an important advocate for the prevention of GBV.  
Educating next generation 

 “The programme takes a prevention approach. It inspires the values of respect and care for one another which we believe helps promote a culture that is free of violence. Our game is a great opportunity to set an example to promote gender equity and  provide pathways for girls to play sport.”   
“Violence is something that is not really addressed and talked about, and this programme looks at how to empower our youth not just in their homes and lives but for the next generation,” 
By connecting to sports values, Voice Against Violence tackles the issue of domestic violence in a culturally sensitive way, hence ensuring a broader uptake in the community.


Our goal is to educate and empower young people to be advocates in speaking out and standing up against all forms of violence
