The Gathering of the 3000 are proud to be supported by a host of great organisations each with their own objectives for helping our Pacific and local Wellington communities




Pasefika Proud

The Pasefika Proud Campaign addresses violence in Pacific families by using clear, consistent messaging around building strong families, preventing and addressing violence designed, delivered and led by Pacific peoples. Pasefika Proud aims to provide clear and consistent messages about building strong Pacific families, preventing and addressing violence, and changing attitudes and behaviour.

The campaign also provides support and resources for those working in the area of addressing family violence related to workforce development. Support is also provided for relevant Pacific community projects and regional events.

A key focus for Pasefika Proud is to explore what we can more of, differently and collectively, for our communities. Another key focus is to help dispel myths and common beliefs used as excuses for violence. It creates a social climate that normalises peaceful families and advocates for Pacific families to be violence-free.

Users on their website are able to sign up to the Pacific Family Violence Training Programme or access free resources relating to family violence in the Pacific community.
