The Commonwealth Secretariat through the Commonwealth Fund For Technical Cooperation C-F-T-C Programme has offered a scholarship Award to a Solomon Islander.

Francis William Rea won the award to undertake a two year Diploma Course in Youth Development at the Solomon Islands College of Higher Education in Honiara between 2007 and 2008.

Assistant Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Alfred Mane Lovanitila, who also acts as the C-F-T-C Point of Contact congratulated Mr. Rea for having won the C-F-T-C Award.

He urged Mr Rea to capitalise on the opportunity provided by the Commonwealth Secretariat to successfully complete the program and be an agent of change by helping other youths to acquire necessary skills and become active participants in the development of the country.

Mr. Rea said he will do his best to complete the program successfully
