“A life skills training was successfully carried out by the Guadalcanal Provincial Council of Women (GPCW).
“Funded by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) based in Canada, this training was specifically held for settlers confined in the emergency zone.
“On 21st April, participants from Koqulai and Veravasa were encouraged to utilize their land instead of selling them.
“Agribusiness is the way to go”, Selina Berah from the GPCW said.
“Since a state of emergency was declared, the GPCW are concerned about their people's welfare directly affected by the SoE.
“With that, they decided to seek funds to support these people through life skills training.
“Commonwealth of Learning was approached by GPCW to support their endeavor.
“Commonwealth of Learning is an intergovernmental organization created by the Commonwealth Heads of Government. It was established to promote development and sharing of open learning and distance education knowledge, resources and technologies.”
