MOU boosts forum

A SHELL jewellery project undertaken by about 10 women and men from rural villages in Ba has been instrumental in providing jobs and allowing them to make use of local resources.

The Ba Women's Forum started the Mother of Pearl project last year and finished phase three of their training with a certificate presentation ceremony in Ba on Thursday.

Special administrator for Ba Praveen Bala said this was made possible through the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Ba Town Council and the University of Adelaide.

"We had allowed for the provision of dedicated space to the council building for general training of the participants," he said.

He said the town council would continue to support the women's forum.

Attorney-General and Minister for Trade and Industry Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum commended the graduates for their hard work.

"This is a remarkable achievement and this is a fantastic example of what can be achieved with a little bit of training, effort and energy," he said.

"This project is in co-ordination between the Ministry of Women, trainers, Ba Town Council, the Ba Women's Forum, Ministry of Trade and the private sector."
