Peter Josephs is a man on a mission – he wants to help Pasifika men be better dads, Stuff reveals. Josephs is part of Le Va, an Auckland-based organisation that focuses on health and wellbeing outcomes for Pasifika families. A majority of the men joining the programme have been Pasifika, many struggling. “A key component of our workshop is driven by proverbs from many of the islands, from places like Tuvalu, Tonga, Fiji,” says Josephs. “Pasifika men, we come in all shapes and sizes; we’re big men, but traditionally we’re caring, we nurture, we cook, we serve our families.”
