Council aims to improve services in villages

GENDER mainstreaming, poverty alleviation and service integration are issues the Ba Provincial Council wants discussed and guidelines implemented at district and village level.

Roko tui Ba Josefa Toganivalu said the aim was to improve services to the people.

"We have been doing this sort of thing in the past but there was no clear guideline to assist us," he said.

"So we have introduced these policies so that we could also monitor existing programs."

He said in the past, NGOs would enter villages to educate and raise awareness on gender issues but did not involve the council.

"Some NGOs would come and go to our villages and the things they've introduced are not monitored by us.

"So we want to do this to monitor these programs and also integrate programs that are already there with these new policies.

"We know that these programs are useful and will help us."
