EMPOWER Pacific successfully conducted child protection workshops for more than 6000 children, teachers and parents during the course of last year.
"Over 200 children were helped through direct intervention and individual counselling," said the NGO's CEO Patrick Morgam said.
"It is notable that there is growing community attention to child protection and Empower Pacific is one of the very few local organisations with professional capacity in this area."
He said the organisation was committed to boosting its community building efforts.
This was why they were focused on introducing income generating programs.
"These programs assisted over 400 families through subsidised loans to establish new and additional business opportunities aimed at supplementing family income.
"Most support was given to families involved in the sugar industry.
"A similar program to assist in general disaster recovery was completed during the year.
"Another continuing program is the support of prisoners and their families.
"This support involves general counselling, referral to family assistance services, and the identification of income generation opportunities (to prevent the need for re-offending)," Mr Morgam said.
