Message from The Patron
I would firstly like to acknowledge our heavenly father for his blessings in which he continues to bestow upon each and every one of us daily. We praise in your name our heavenly father and give praise and thanks for all you continue to bless us with.
As Patron of the TLA I am humbly honoured to acknowledge the inception of the TLA strategic plan 2016-2020. The importance of the TLA is very dear and close to my heart, not only do I celebrate and support the new vision and mission of the TLA, I also acknowledge the importance for Tonga to continue supporting the achievements of our TLA members nationally and internationally.
Sexual health, HIV and AIDS and human rights for all Leitis in Tonga sets an ongoing platform for Leitis themselves to develop strategies and goals to be achieved by themselves and catering to their own specific needs. I can never fully understand the complexities involved in daily life as a Leiti in Tonga, but as a fellow Tongan, I can do my best to continue supporting Leitis in achieving early intervention methods and plans pertaining to sexual health, HIV and AIDS and human rights issues. I will support the TLA in carrying out the activities in this plan free from harm, prejudice and
I wish to acknowledge all who have supported and participated in the planning of the strategic plan and encourage all TLA members to continue your good work in achieving and developing your goals collectively.
May our heavenly father continue to bless us all.
The Honourable Salote Lupepau’u Salamasina Purea Vahine Ari’i O’e Hau Tuita
Patron of the Tonga Leitis’ Association
