The Family Voice started observing 1 Billion Rising last year with the help of partner organizations. The event will be marked with lives band from University of Goroka and the International School of Goroka and we will be inviting the public to join with dancing and fun activities. We'll be joined by schools performing music and dance at the historical park here in Goroka. Peace Park is used for mediation and this is why we chose to this place to rise up and end violence against women.
