A meeting between the Solomon Islands Safer City for Girls and Australian delegation revealed that most public places in the capital (Honiara) are unsafe for girls.
This is because most public places are without street lights, securities, increased criminal activities like alcohol consumption and illegal selling of alcohol to name a few.
A concerned outspoken girl expressed yesterday the unsafe environments within the capital has made us live with fear and threats.
“If we continue to have public places unsafe it will affect the way we learn and interact with others,” she said.
Hence responsible authorities, Ministries and Non–governmental are called on to find ways to address this growing issue
