THE family and sexually violence action committee is urging people to become role models to end all forms of violence.
The committee’s national programme coordinator Ume Wainetti said that when launching a 20-day campaign of human rights day on Saturday.
The campaign theme is “End violence; be the change; educate your child”.
“I think people should change, we’ve always asked government to do things for people, the theme is saying that for us to stop violence, we must stop it ourselves,” Wainetti said.
“The first person to reach out to is your own child, so that the change in you is reflected by what you do for your child.
“Many times we hear about our children being beaten up, women  beaten up – all sorts of violence we hear about. This is the time of the year that we educate each other, that people have rights its doesn’t matter whether you are man, woman or a child. We all have rights”
Australian High Commission counsellor Susan Ferguson said violence against women and children was a global issue and the Australian government had signed a memorandum of understanding with PNG to convey the message through sports.
