Twenty women from Mbokonavera 4 received their certificates after they successfully completed the Sistas Savve training, small business and food safety trainings.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for East Honiara Douglas Ete congratulates the women.
He said Sistas Savve is a great example of how the country can build sexual and reproductive health and rights into comprehensive life and livelihood training for young women, who have not had the chance to complete a formal education.
“These women’s new knowledge and skills will impact not only their families but would also help their entire communities,” he said.
Mr Ete said he sees the women as peer educators and advocators and is inspired by the organisation’s support to help them.
He thanked the New Zealand Government for supporting the Sistas Savve project, as one of the few initiatives promoting women’s empowerment and health in Solomon Islands.
Sarah Wong of New Zealand High Commission congratulates the women and recommended them to share the skills and teach other women in their community of what learn.
“The training is good for the women to come up strong with the skills they get to help them,” she said.
