This report is in three main sections. The first section case-studies two group bible studies developed and piloted during the
project to promote a deeper discussion on VAW. The bible studies are part of a larger bible study resource, which will be
available in both English and Samoan, for work in this area. The second section
offers a background briefing on VAW in
Samoa with particular attention to the challenges it raises for churches. The third section, emerging from the project
conference in Auckland on 11 June 2018, discusses the creative approach adopted by Mercy Ah Siu Maliko in the research.
This report is the work of the project: Fola le ta’ui a le Atua: Rolling Out the Mat of Scripture: Church Responses to Gender-Based Violence Against Women in Samoa: Supporting Church Capacity for Transformative Social Leadership. The two bible study resources can be read in this report in English and Samoan or accessed in Samoan from the website. Record #6279
