The Melbourne Pasifika Festival is an annual celebration of Pasifika Cultures in Australia organised by WFWP Australia. It is delivered in partnership with the United Pasifika Council of Victoria (UPCOV) and the Victorian Multicultural Commission.

The funds raised at the event will support:

PASIFIKA SCHOLARSHIP FUND
This initiative provides young adults with the opportunity to access empowering educational programs at universities in their own country.

From 2017-2019, WFWP Oceania sponsored Jenny to become a primary school teacher. She has now graduated and is working at the SunHak Primary School in the Solomon Islands.

In 2020, WFWP Oceania is sponsoring: Janet (to become a kindergarten teacher) and Selina (to become a primary school teacher)

PASIFIKA MICRO-CREDIT

Micro-credit loans are made of a small amount of money that is borrowed by trusted applicants. This start-up amount of money is used by the applicants to create a business and generate further income. Applicants make repayments to their loan, so the amount can be reused for other applicants.

The Pasifika Microcredit initiative is officially being launched in Papua New Guinea this January 2020. Applicants will attend an introductory workshop to learn valuable skills for their business.

With a total amount of $3000 available, 6 selected applicants will receive a micro-loan of $500. Stay tuned for more updates!

WOMEN'S SEWING CENTRES

Located in the Pacific Islands, the centres provide women with an opportunity to gain skills and support their families economically. The sewing centre in the Solomon Islands is currently moving into a new location, which needs renovation.
