TARD to meet New Zealand organization Director today

The To'abaita Authority for Research & Development (TARD) Honiara committee members will be meeting the Director of Mahitahi Volunteer Organization, Christina Reymer, at the Holy Cross compound at 4.30pm today.

Mahitahi is the official Catholic volunteer agency which seeks New Zealanders to enter into project partnerships with the communities of Oceania through the sharing of their gifts and skills. They seek to recruit people with the appropriate expertise to work in jobs and projects alongside Pacific Island Partners, to assist them as they journey to achieving their goals.

TARD is working in partnership with Mahitahi and the Diocese of Malaita to facilitate two New Zealand based coaches/mentors for soccer and netball to spearhead a proposed 3-week 'North Malaita sports coaching workshop' to be convened by end of this year.

The sports mentroing workshop is expected to enhance capacity building and leadership skills among the rural sports clubs and schools sportsmasters & mistresses throughout North Malaita. The program will comprise three 1-week trainings at Malu'u, Bita'ama and Fo'ondo sports grounds.

TARD is also planning to facilitate future Mahitahi volunteers in other areas such as builders, small business trainers, nurses and medial professionals, and school teachers.
