Three women graduated at the Pacific Centre for Peacebuilding (PCP_ in Suva last Friday.
They have now graduated with a Diploma in Leadership and Peacebuilding after undergoing a two-year programme.
“Courses in peacebuilding helps to provide us with better options when dealing with conflicts,” director for Suva- based Pacific Centre for Peacebuilding Arieta Koila Costello-Olsson said.
“These courses are valuable and the women who graduated today are going to be the very first women leaders in the peace building process,” Mrs Olsson said.
Graduate Jerolie Navala, 31, from Solomon Islands said empowering each other as women was one of the best experiences when undergoing the course.
“We learn from each other on how to encounter certain disagreements in our communities and how we can handle it and at the same time encourage each other to take part in the decision-making process in our society,” Miss Navala said.
The Pacific Centre for Peacebuilding (PCP) is a non-profit organisation established in 2007.
It offers a range of services in areas such as dialogue facilitation, peace building training and conflict analysis and prevention.
PCP works with the private and non-governmental sectors, along with Government, inter-governmental, regional and international institutions.
