THE Fiji Women's Crisis Centre hosted the Fiji Volleyball Federation (FVF) to its first child protection training yesterday.

The training was conducted by Farzana Gulista and was attended by about 10 coaches, referees, officials and administrators.

Federation programs manager Semaima Lagilagi said the training was a result of the endorsement of child protection policy over the weekend by the executive board members of FVF.

"This is the first of a few training sessions and seminars that the centre will host," she said.

"The main area of discussion today (yesterday) is child protection and the laws and policies regarding children in the country."

Lagilagi said they were looking forward to conducting similar training and seminars in the Western and Northern divisions next month.

"We are the first sport in the country to adopt such a policy and we want to reach out to as many of our players, coaches, referees, officials, and administrators as possible.

"We want to educate them on their roles and responsibilities as adults and how they can prevent child abuse in the country.

"Child abuse is highly prevalent in the country and it's about time someone did something about it.

"The Pacific Volleyball Partnership program is working in partnership with the FWCC in the training of all Fiji volleyball officials, coaches, referees and administrators."
