Samoa Victim Support Group (SVSG) was established in 2005 whose mission is to provide integrated, personalised, professional service to all survivors of crime.
The organization was set up on a dream of a young, single lawyer who identified the difficulties faced by victims who do not have support from family members. Also, there was no place of refuge and support for the victims. Ex-police officers and members of a criminal team came together to form SVSG mainly to be responsible for providing support and counseling for the victims.
Initially set up to care, support, and help victims of sexual crimes, SVSG saw after the first few cases it handled, that victims of other areas also sought to get help. As such, SVSG has now extended its arms to embrace victims in any area of need, whether it be domestic violence, harassment in the work place, victims of poverty, etc.SVSG has seen past the pain, tears and heartache of many victims, and brought out joy, confidence, belief in oneself and justice for those who in the past, have been brushed aside because they were without a voice to speak up for them. SVSG is taking a stand, and will continue to stand, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of many, for we believe that anyone and everyone can become a victim
