According to Provincial Secretary of Malaita province Mr. Jackson Gege, it is a historical opportunity for youths in Malaita province to study in Canada through the Canadian CITREC program.
He said, this year’s intake from Malaita itself is 44 youths around Malaita Province where they will have opportunities from this program.
These youths are fortunate to have chances of going out for further studies through this CITREC program.
