AUSAID fund TARD-North Malaita 2006 Christmas Games.

The Toabaita Authority for Research and Development (TARD) will receive a substantial amount of money from AUSAID’s fund for North West Malaita proposed Christmas Games. The amount to be presented to TARD for that initiative is SBD$3,680 and will be received on our behalf by the four (4) members of the group who are already in Honiara late this week.
According to TARD’s Chairman, Mr. Taloiburi, the amount will pass to the organising committee and we entrust them to be fully accountable and would use to facilitate the TARD's proposed North West Malaita 2006 Christmas Games to be held at Maluu from Dec 20-22.
This means that the food and transports costs for TARD organisers, administrative costs, referees and umpires fees plus the fees for that 3-day tournament will be catered for under this funding.

Therefore, on behaviour of TARD and people of North Malaita we would like to thank Anthea Blaikie, the second Secretary Australian of High Commission in Honiara and AUSAID for impressively recognising TARD’S existence as a group and its development goals towards people in North Malaita region.

Below is Anthea Blaikie’s impressive response to TARD’s proposal submitted by two TARD members, Chairman Mr. Taloiburi and sport organising committee rep. Mr. Lenny Konamauri.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and dedication TARD represents.
I am pleased to tell you that the Australian High Commission has agreed to fund your proposal to organise the North Malaita Christmas Games for 2006. Congratulations and I look forward to hearing reports of your success. I will draft a letter to be signed by the Acting High Commissioner formally advising you of our offer of funding, attached with a cheque. Could you please advise whether I can address the cheque to TARD or to you as chairman?

We need to organise a day preferably late next week on Thursday or Friday to present the letter and cheque. Please advise when you are available.

Congratulations again and I wish you all the best in TARD's endeavours.
