Our Inspiration

The inspiration behind Supakako is based on the work of Founder & President, Tuala Tagaloa Tusani, a high school dropout, suicide survivor and deportee. Tuala survived a suicide attempt as a 19-year-old and spent months in a wheel chair. At the age of 20 he went back to school and never looked back. He is now using his second chance to raise awareness around suicide awareness and helping people that grew up in communities like himself MAKE their Dreams Happen.

A wise senior Samoa matai said, “E lelei le va’a e gau o folau nai loo le va’a e pala i lalo o le fau.” It literally means, better the canoe that breaks while sailing than the canoe rotting under the fau tree.
