ACCORDING to President of Pacific Regional Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) organization, Ms Gail Commens, two Solomon Islands women will participate in the World conference that will take place next year in Australia.
She revealed this when speaking to five groups of women’s saving clubs at Tasimboko, Northeast Guadalcanal on Sept 18th.
Commens explained that Australia and New Zealand are funding women from the islands to attend the conference.
She said this will allow women from Solomon Islands to hear about what projects women from other countries are working on, what they do and their needs.
“That’s where you’ll see women from other countries around the world and hear about their projects, what they do and their needs”, said Commens.
She added that while only two women from Solomon Islands will attend the event she hopes more women will be able to attend the Pacific Area conference at Papua New Guinea in 2020.
“I am hoping maybe a whole lot more of you will make it to that conference and that will be in Mid-June”, said Commens.
Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) is an organization that connects women in rural and non-rural areas and their communities through a network of member societies and individual members.
The organization strives to help women and children in communities live in a better place.
