More about us
We run two shelters for young women and children. Plus a nursery for new born babies who are the result of abuse and neglect in Samoa.
These are run on goodwill. We support the women as their cases go through the court system; we advocate for change in wider Samoan society and government; and we support those at risk of becoming victims.
Our Volunteers and Village reps do so much for SVSG and our community in Samoa. They are the eyes and ears of our villages and the support system that SVSG needs.
Those heart wrenching stories that you hear about our abused children come to our attention most of the times because a village rep has heard something, been told something or witnessed something themselves and then alerted the SVSG main office.
Our Global SVSG branches have come up with a lovely way to give back to our dedicated volunteers.
The SVSG Christmas Appeal to give back has commenced and we ask you to feel the christmas spirit, dig deep and make your $25 donation to go towards this awesome appeal.
All you have to do is jump onto our givealittle account and make your donation, or if you are in Samoa and you'd like to contribute, pop your donation in an envelope, write Christmas appeal on it and personally deliver it to SVSG President, Lina Chang.
For those of you donating from abroad please reference where you are from such as Auckland, Sydney etc.
Please share this with your friends and family and lets try to give a christmas blessing to those who play such an important part in the work that SVSG do.
