Facemarks and Beautiful Handbags from the Campus of Hope


Look no further to secure your order of facemarks.

The young women being housed at the Campus of Hope are making beautiful handbags as well as facemarks, as an initiative to help build skill and confidence.

Mrs Angeline Scanlan had come in to help to train the children in sewing as part of Campus activities, giving up her Saturdays to conduct the sessions.

“It is so rewarding, seeing their smiles”, she says.

Many of the young girls are at the Samoa Victim Support Group Campus to await Court dates, for cases of sexual violence and abuse towards them.

A visit to the Campus of Hope will leave you with a different perspective of national priorities, as these young victims shift their mindsets to becoming survivors, under the guardianship of SVSG President Siliniu Lina Chang.

The SVSG is a non government organisation (NGO) that relies on community donations to house, feed and clothe the close to 100 children in its care.

Known as “Mama Lina” by the children of the Campus, Siliniu says the project will help build skill and entrepreneurship amongst the young girls.

So purchase your facemasks from the Nofotane store located at the SVSG Apia Office.

There are plenty available at $3 each.

Stay safe Samoa ❤
