Leadership vital

RARANIBULUBULU Village headman Ratu Waqa Tumuri has praised a recent three-day leadership training.

The training, which was hosted by the Pacific Centre for Peacebuilding in Raranibulubulu Village, brought together 21 participants from the villages of Waikisi, Nubunikavula, Raranibulubulu and Nubu.

Ratu Waqa said most leaders were good at saying things and did the opposite when it came to working issues out.

"I hope that after this training, we will take heed of all we have learnt and use it to better our lives, families, village and the community. As witnessed in the previous trainings one of the sensitive issues often highlighted during the meetings is the role of women and youths in a iTaukei society," he said.

"Most villages still practise the non-participation of women and youths in village meetings and in decision making and we have been addressing these issues during the workshop."

According to facilitator Tevita Tokalauvere of PCP, the training focused on the enlightenment of leadership roles in communities.

"We are not here to change anything, we are here to train community leaders with the skills necessary for effective leadership and conflict transformation that will strengthen community-based relationships," Mr Tokalauvere said.
