DSE’s Jennifer Wate said, “DSE mission is for a vibrant and robust civil society organisation that works together to empower peaceful, prosperous and sustainable communities to promote good governance among development partners towards improved quality of life for the people of Solomon Islands.
“Our mission is also to strengthen effective NGO coordination through advocacy, information sharing, capacity building and collaboration to ensure a credible, accountable and transparent civil society sector working towards equal and sustainable development in the Solomon Islands.
“Our values and beliefs are through relationship, leadership and management excellence, good governance and stewardship, social justice and interdependence and self-reliance empowerment.”
She said the aim of the training is to provide knowledge through understanding the concept of governance and management and the key factors of NGOs and their roles.
