This report documents the implementation of the “Cherishing Cultural Diversity” Human Rights Assisting Communities Together Project (ACT)
undertaken by Vanuatu Association of Women Graduates (VAWG). The ACT Project is a joint initiative of United Nations Office of the High
Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), which financially supports local
initiatives for the promotion and protection of human rights.
The main goal of VAWG’s proposal was to develop ni-Vanuatu capacities to respect, promote and protect human rights in a direct and tangible
way by raising awareness and educating ni-Vanuatu young people in particular, and especially at grassroots level, about the
Constitutional value of Cherishing Ethnic, Linguistic and Cultural diversity.
The UN funds provided the opportunity to produce a colourful Poster (cover photo). Public launches were conducted in each of the
Provinces and the poster was distributed to schools and colleges throughout Vanuatu.
