Manioro means to make a noise, to create a disturbance. ‘Disruption provides opportunity for growth.’ - Shaqaila Uelese. We thank @nevertheless_nz for sharing their Rainbow Competency Training, which enhanced our understanding of how to support our MVPFAFF+, Takatāpui, and Rainbow+ communities. This training provided our staff with a valuable opportunity to grow in allyship. 
 
At Le Va, our mission is to empower Pasifika families and communities to reach their full potential. A key part of this commitment is identifying and addressing inequities to serve our diverse communities equitably. This essential training represents a tangible commitment to and a step towards fulfilling our mission to ignite our communities and create positive change.

In our efforts to prevent sexual violence, Atu-Mai has been busy connecting with various violence prevention organisations, in order to inform a community mobilisation response in Tāmaki Makaurau.

By working alongside community leaders and other organisations in the sector, it means we can share knowledge, skills and resources to be more effective in addressing and preventing sexual violence in our communities.

We are excited to gather with champions in the community soon to assist with action research in the next stage of community mobilisation.
