Two Solomon youths to attend Oxfam International Youth partnership meeting in Hong Kong

Two Solomon Islands youths, Lawrence Nodua and Kennedy Folasi, will be participating in the Oxfam International Youth Partnership Program meeting of trainers in Hong Kong.

Mr Nodua said they will leave the country tomorrow for the week long meeting which is anticipated to attract at least 30 young people from Asia, Europe, Caribbean, America, Australia and the pacific who are members of the global network “Oxfam International Youth Partnership”.

“The meeting is to plan towards the world event of Oxfam International Youth Partnership third sitting which will bring together a total of 300 young people around the world to discus and plan out strategies to assist their communities in a small way to alleviate ongoing problems youths face daily in their lives,” Mr Nodua said.

The third sitting of OIYP will be taking place in Sydney, Australia from September 30 to October 9.

Mr Nodua said in Hong Kong facilitators will build and learn more about roles and responsibilities of a facilitator as mentor and motivators as they prepare for the OIYP event programs in September.

After the meeting in Hong Kong facilitators will become resource persons at various stages from 2007-2010.

Mr Nodua said he looks forward to working closely with the various youth stakeholders in the country to encourage youth development.
