Vanuatu soccer star advocates RISPEK at National Games

Vanuatu soccer star and RISPEK ambassador, Bong Kalo, is using the platform of the Vanuatu National Games to encourage youths to understand their rights and take a stand against sexual violence.

Vanuatu RISPEK is part of World Vision's ‘It Takes a World to End Violence Against Children’ campaign.

In Vanuatu, the campaign is called Vanuatu Rispek - It Takes Respect to Create a Safer Vanuatu with the slogan 'Rispektem Yu wan, Rispektem Narafala man' (Respect Yourself, Respect others).

The campaign aims to help young people understand their rights and the rights of others in relation to consent and to feel empowered to take a stand against sexual violence to create a safer Vanuatu.

The campaign is managed by World Visions' Gender Based Violence project called REACH.

REACH is funded by the Australian government and private donations to World Vision Australia
