A first-ever organisa­tional strengthening and leadership train­ing was held for women leaders from the nine vil­lages in Nasavusavu dis­trict, Cakaudrove aimed to enhance women’s organisa­tional and leadership man­agement skills.

The Organisational Strengthening Project training on August 31 in­volved a leadership em­powerment training for all women group leaders and office bearers of the nine villages of Nasavusavu dis­trict.

Ten similar trainings are planned for women in the 134 villages in the 15 dis­tricts of the province to bet­ter equip them.

President, Adi Salaseini Kavu Fong, said the train­ing was aimed at fostering women with good leader­ship skills to be capable of organising and managing their group activities prop­erly.

The project was funded by the Australian Volunteers Impact Fund.

Ms Fong acknowledged the support and believed the organisation was a blessing to the course of empower­ment.

“Good leadership qualities will lead to a vibrant, active woman in rural villages in the province thus igniting socio-economic develop­ment,” she said.

Yaroi Village women’s group treasurer, Merelita, was thankful for the leader­ship session.

She said the skills learnt at the training will be used to develop young leaders and increase women’s represen­tation in community or vil­lage decisions.

Another women leader, Maraia, shared similar sen­timents and said she would incorporate some of these skills and qualities of trans­parency in their church and village committees.

These women group lead­ers (President, Secretary and Treasures) are part of the Soqosoqo Vakamara­ma Itaukei Cakaudrove provincial council group.
