Stop Violence Against Women
St Cuthbert's Amnesty group, Auckland , collected more than 500 signatures on our Pacific petiton - and this fantastic powerpoint helped to spread the message. Created by group co-ordinator, Jade Fai Leung - it was used within classrooms to advertise why every signature counts in an inventive and fun way. Jade says, "It would be an absolute pleasure to have it used as a resource."
