Elimination of Violence Against Women

Spearheading Anitua’s Corporate Social Responsibility program and in accord with our vision for healthy, prosperous and sustainable communities in which we operate, is our Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW) Program. A comprehensive and group-wide approach to eliminating violence against women.

The Anitua Group officially launched its EVAW Program in 2013 on White Ribbon Day – the international day of action calling for the end to violence against women throughout PNG in five ways:

  1. Championing and committing to fund the construction of a Meri Seif Haus (women’s refuge) on Lihir, the company’s birthplace. 
    The Meri Seif Haus will provide emergency accommodation and support services to women and their children.
  2. Implementing the International White Ribbon Workplace Program throughout its businesses across PNG. 
    Our workplaces will be safer for female employees and more supportive of those who suffer violence.
  3. Lobbying other businesses and the mining industry to introduce their own EVAW initiatives. 
    There are many arguments for why businesses must play a role in eliminating violence against women, including humanitarian, legal, workplace safety, productivity and business costs.
  4. Keeping the problem of violence against women in the public eye through a variety of media, activities and events. 
    Anitua believes that violence against women is not a private matter but a public one as EVERYONE, including children, families, communities, and businesses all suffer when women are hurt.
  5. Assisting other businesses to introduce EVAW initiatives through the World Bank-IFC sponsored Business Coalition for Women.
    Anitua and NCS are Foundation Members and we are represented on the Board as well as on the  ‘Addressing Violence’ and ‘Gender Smart Policies’ working groups.
