Bottom Up Approach, desire for a new Solomon Islands: Rev. Bako

The Bottom Up Approach Policy is the desire for a new Solomon Islands. This was the statement of Kingdom Harvest Reverend Elison Bako during the ecumenical service on Friday to launch the policy.

Rev Bako said a new Solomon Islands is what most people want. He said throughout the years, rural people have been forgotten, although they account for the majority of the country’s population.

However, he said with the policy Solomon Islands would never be the same again. “It’s time to change, rise and shine – change everything for the good,” Rev Bako said.

According to many members of the public who participated in the launching, the policy is a new beginning. In fact this is the first time any government-oriented launching took the streets and witnessed by the grassroots.

The members of the public also applauded the prime minister who led the march with senior government officials. The march started from Point Cruz Hot Bread Kitchen to Wesley United Church where the service to launch the government was held.

The Entrepreneurial Development Training Centre (EDTC) institute will help bring the policy to the rural areas through the personal viability workshops. The workshops are based on educating people on holistic human development.
