After 3o hours in and out of airports, I need some time to recover. Back soon, I promise, but until then, enjoy a Public Health announcement from Filutonu:


Filitonu is Tonga Family Health’s drama group which began in 2000 as part of the Adolescent Reproductive Health project.

Filitonu translates to mean ‘right choice’ in English. The drama group deliver performances to Tongan schools and communities that explore issues that effect the local youth – such as drinking, obesity, violence, peer pressure and sexual health. They also perform entertainment at a variety of local events to raise the profile of the Tonga Family Health Association.

Fili Tonu is currently made up of nine volunteer artists, but is open to the broader public to join. All the dramas are scripted and written by Fili Tonu.
