Women share their stories

Salaseini Moceiwai

WOMEN from a multi-racial community in Labasa had the opportunity to share their stories and daily situations during a leadership workshop yesterday.

Facilitated by the Pacific Centre for Peace Building, the three-day workshop was aimed at strengthening women's voices in their communities.

Centre communication officer Grace Fox said this was the second leadership training program designed for women in Labasa.

"The training aims to strengthen the voices of women as they share their concerns and that of their communities in their work to resolve conflict non-violently," she said.

"The women are from the multiracial communities of Vunimoli, Nabekavu, Wainikoro and Nakama in Labasa.

"The Pacific Centre for Peace Building works with peace-builders in the Pacific to transform, reduce and prevent conflict. We vision to create a just, peaceful and sustainable Pacific."

The organisation, Mrs Fox said, actively worked to promote gender justice through inclusive decision-making, empowerment and participation.

The project is supported by the International Women's Development Agency.

The workshop ends tomorrow.
