Gender Equality is an important tool that contributes to the development of the country.

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa,30/05/2018

The National Policy on Gender and Development implemented from 2014-2018 was aimed to further promote gender equality in Tonga. Over the past two years the Women’s Affairs Division of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, drafted the Tonga Gender Mainstreaming Handbook to provide guidelines to achieve this goal.

With the completion of this handbook, a one day workshop was conducted this morning to verify the use of this handbook among related stakeholders.

Polotu Paunga from the Womens Affairs Division said this handbook would be used all around the kingdom, not only in the government ministries but the private sector as well.

This move would take Tonga one step closer to achieving global goals in gender equality.
