Kainga Tu’umalie means ‘prosperous family’.

It is an innovative faith-based programme for the prevention and restoration of Family Violence within Tongan Churches. AW’s new approach is aligned to the Pasifika Conceptual Frameworks provided in “Fofola e Fala kae Talanoa e Kainga”, the Ministry of Social Development’s, Tongan family violence framework.

PASIFIKA FRAMEWORK

We have aligned our approach in the programme with the Pasifika Conceptual Frameworks provided in “Fofola e Fala kae Talanoa e Kainga”, the Ministry of Social Development’s Tongan family violence framework.

CULTURALLY RELEVANT

The programme provides theories that are culturally relevant and reinforced through biblical teaching for participating churches from the Tongan Community and includes the Catholic, Seventh-Day Adventist, Methodist and Pentecostal Christian churches.

FAITH INSPIRED

We believe that the influence of the church in the Tongan community provides an opportunity to explore how faith based approaches and a Tongan framework for family violence can be brought together to deliver a programme that will have long-term benefits for Tongan families and their communities.

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2

Si’i ‘ofa’anga, ‘oku ou hufia koe ke ke tu’umalie ‘i he me’a kotoa pe, Kae’uma‘ā ke ke mo’ui lelei, ‘o hange ko e tu’umalie ‘a ho laumalie. 3 SIONE 1:2
