Gatekeepers play a vital role

GATEKEEPERS play the vital role of ensuring that a declared violence free community adheres to the policies of the program, says Social Welfare Minister Dr Jiko Luveni.

"Each community will form a gatekeepers committee," she said.

"So it is the gatekeepers committee that will continue to provide us with reports and not only that our own staff will be going around to each community to monitor these communities."

Dr Luveni said a project officer had also been appointed this year to monitor violence free communities in the country.

"She has this special task of moving around to all of these violence free communities and to gather reports from the gatekeepers. The officer also ensures that interest in these declarations is still there from the community members."

She said the campaign had been a success with three more communities from Lautoka being declared violence free.

"We feel that this is a campaign that touches the lives of women and children and the whole family."

The communities include Vanuakula, Seniyaya and Dreketi settlement near Lomolomo.
