The Amazing Race

May 28, 2011

The Samoan Victim Support Group is an NGO which is trying to reduce the amount of domestic violence and to provide a shelter for those victims of abuse. The Group has been successful in raising awareness of people’s legal rights regarding domestic abuse with signs and pamplets throughout the country.

Supy Tauthong is an Peace Corps Volunteer who extended for a third year and is working with the organization. He helped to organize “A Samoan Amazing Race” of 8 four member teams who raced frantically through the streets of Apia for two hours trying to earn prize points and generally creating quite a stir doing various stunts. Fun event for a serious cause.
