The ‘Trupla Man’ campaign on gender-based violence sparked the recent PNG Women’s Forum, hosted by the American Embassy.
Rugby League Against Violence Executive Director, and Founder, Adam Everill, was part of the Forum, providing reports on using rugby league as a medium to combat gender-based violence.
Snatching gold, or being competitive at the highest sanctioned tournaments, and World Cup meets, is an achievement that leaves a lasting legacy.
The sporting arena is chosen as an avenue to disseminate information on advocating people on gender- based violence.
Many sporting heroes in different codes and children are being used in this program.
Rugby League is chosen in Papua New Guinea and Australia prior to its status to inform people on gender based violence.
The recent held PNG Women’s Forum, organized by the American Embassy, has come into the spotlight, the discussion held with the Founder and Executive Director of Rugby League against Violence, Adam Everill.
He says men play the leading role in the family, providing decent environments for the children, and it would be fair to use them to advocate people on combating gender-based violence, attitudes and action of Papua New Guineans towards women.
Everill has visited some of the communities in Port Moresby including Morata and Kaugere, conducting seminars and workshops.
Last year, he facilitated a workshop in partnership with Non-Governmental Organizations.
Volunteers came from different communities in Port Moresby to attend the workshop, and were pleased with what they learned.
Recently American Ambassador Walter North made mention the importance the program has to eradicate gender-based violence, and embraced true heroes in sports.
