thank you for using others to bring about the dream that we just launched today and you’ve got the footy in your hands right now each one of you in this room have the football in your hand right now very impressed with the workshop today with the launching of the program this morning i thought that um all the key players with the prayers that garden of mafi did that was very uplifting and also the launch by the australian high commission i think to uh great uh advocates here in tong oh i really enjoy it well wonderful and great messages that you send out also the strategies that you use what is it about the tongans and their love for sport they are great lovers of these sports especially the it’s everything to do with rugby’s whether it’s union seven aside and even league so to be able to use rugby league to bring together that wide array of groups to create a coalition of the willing when it comes to preventing family and domestic violence i think it’s an incredibly exciting day through the nrl and rugby league using us male sports athletes as the advocates that sort of drive us there are male figures now we can actually help and assist them with all their knowledge hopefully we can put something together to drive this to drive that message i’m really keen on starting with our junior rugby league teams a program to make them aware suggest that i could sort of work through and help me deliver that to the to the boys how important is a program like the voice against violence having this conversation educating around domestic violence to men i think it’s quite important it in fact is very important and for me as from the family particularly center quite excited to be working with you as the voice against domestic violence the reason why is because we don’t have many male advocates and the the fact that we can now work together raise awareness through your program it could be a real success you guys are using um physical activities and also the drills to pass on the message will really um interest the youth and the young males in that age group i think they’re pretty much deaf to us just lecturing them and also if they’re still our students for an hour workshop might not go so well to hold their attention but you guys are using the drills and um those physical activities catch and um hold their attention better than just uh lecturing and talking thank you very much [Music]
