Girls Takeover Parliament (Falealea 'o Tonga) is a Jasiri Australia initiative. Jasiri Australia is proud to partner with the Commonwealth Youth Council this year in effort to push girls to takeover parliament as an innovative programme that allows young women and girls the opportunity to voice their perspectives on matters of national interest in a parliament setting.
The Commonwealth Youth Council aims to carve out social, political and economic space to make young women and girls visible, change perceptions about what is possible for them, and inspire others to join the movement.
Digicel Tonga was happy to be part of this initiatives in driving women leadership in Tonga and be able to sit down and discuss important motions in a parliament setting.
Placing these girls in positions of authority, this national action will seek to transform power relations to see that all Tongan young women and girls learn, lead, decide and thrive.
