The 2011 Week of Action will be about 'Celebrating our Awesome Women.' '2011 is the year Strong Pacific Families Porirua is paying tribute to all the women in our great city of Porirua' says Kitiona Tauira, Strong Pacific Families Coordinator. 'Many people through the ages have stated that 'Women are the back bone of our families, communities and our nations and they're absolutely right.' 'Porirua have produced many amazing women' says Kitiona, 'some have gone on to great things and have received national and international accolades, but it's the Mothers, our Aunties, our Sisters in our homes who lead by faith, who do the everyday things that makes the world turn, they are our real champions and we want to celebrate all of our awesome women.' There are many events planned for the week of action, but unfortunately, the iconic Strong Pacific Families Street Parade will not happen because it was held earlier during the Rugby World Cup, and it was an outstanding success. The events for the week includes the Ecumenical Service promoting 'Together in Faith'; A Women's Wellbeing Day; The fantastic 'Sisters 2011 -- 'For all you do' Concert featuring Mahogany from Australia X-Factor 2010, Ria Hall who sang at the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup and National and Locals performers; the 'Choice not Chance - a chance to share' dialogue day; and the week culminates with the 'Contribute to Distribute' Food Collection around Porirua City. Kitiona said 'The week of events is our way of celebrating all our awesome w o m e n ,butm o r e impo rta ntly, it is Strong Pacific Families Porirua way of saying 'Thank you to all our Mothers, our Aunties and our Sisters - For all you do.'
