Schools and community groups around the Cook Islands are being visited by some New Zealand rugby stars, including players from the Hurricanes, the Crusaders and the Blues.

But their visit isn't all about rugby, because they'll also be speaking out against domestic violence, and promoting the message 'break the silence, end the violence'.

One of the campaign organisers, Cam Roland from New Zealand's Pacific Prevention of Domestic Violence Programme, says role models in sport can convey a powerful message.
