Creating young leaders
Our programs and Conferences are aimed at providing a space and supportive space to all our young pacific men and women. So they can create, explore and speak about issues they may be facing.
Brown Girl Woke provides the tools and our young leaders strive to create a difference in their communities here at home and across the globe.
Join the BGW Movement:
While BGW stands for Women Empowerment we are open to male participants and quite enough we have many young males who are part of our University club at USP, led also by a male student and another one of our BGW Executive members, Victory Tamalelagi
Our Founder Maluseu Doris Tulifau and BGW Executive Chrioni Posini had the privilege of speaking to few overseas journalists and researchers working on articles and dissertations in Samoa ho had known and heard of our organization and wanted to seek more as to what we represent, our movement and involvement in the community.
This initiative is to allow engagement amongst our young students and enabling them to be open to free expression, team building and safety along with leadership skills that may help them with barriers and different obstacles to come in the future.

Following our first Conference in January this year collaborating with Sisters United NZ, came our establishment of NGW University Clubs at The National University of Samoa and The University of the South Pacific, Alafua Campus. These clubs were developed to present a safe space for young university students to gather together, share and support one another.
An original Joyce came up with for our poetry slam. The theme was to speak up about anything personal to them.
