North Malaita Women learn how to make communities better places to live

THE Assemblies of God (AOG) last week held a Women’s Conference for the women of North Malaita.

The two day conference was held at Nazareth Village. More than 200 women from across Malaita attended the conference which focused mainly on roles women can play in building our communities to become better places.

Guest speaker and programme organiser Beverly Komasi said the programme has indeed been a real blessing to those attended.“Through the conference, we have been able to discuss ways in which we as women can learn to stand against the many hardships and trails we face in our communities,” she said.

“We learn that we can also contribute as mothers to resolving issues relating to alcohol and drugs.” Ms Komasi said mothers had a lot of influence on their children and played a big role in shaping their children to become who they are in future.

She said she hoped that more of such conferences will be organised in future. “I believe that through more of such conferences, we can help our women shine out as good leaders in our communities,” she said.

Meanwhile Ms Komasi also highlighted that preparations are now underway for the church’s upcoming 2007 Solomon Islands Youth Rally to be held at Auki early December. “We are expecting many youths around the country to come that is why we are preparing everything this early - the sooner the better,” Ms Komasi said.
