“The Western Province Council of Women (WPCW) is making preparations from the provincial capital Gizo, to extend their reach to the women of Shortland Islands and Marovo.
“With the help of Oxfam’s Safe Families project, a delegation led by the WPCW will visit Famoa women in Shortland Islands at Nila and Marovo women at Seghe with the objective to consult women and share their views in the review of the current WPCW constitution and strategic plan.
“The team departed Gizo this week for what would be the WPCW’s first-ever ground visit to the isolated communities of Shortland Islands and finally bridge the participatory gap with Marovo.
“The WPCW President, Rendy Solomon says that these visits will be a major highlight because it will be the first time for the Council to directly interact with the women in these communities since its establishment in 2007.”
