SIX visiting individuals from the United States of America (USA) through the Plan International Programme in Solomon Islands are pleased to see the Solomon Islands Young Women Christian Association (YWCA) engaged in the recycling programme.
The visitors, three males and three females, are here for the YWCA recycling programme called the ‘Y’s Eyes’.
Speaking during a one-hour session with YWCA staffs, they expressed being impressed that some organisations in the country are paying attention to the importance of recycling in combatting a struggling environment.
General Secretary of SI YWCA Mrs Jocelyn Lai welcomed the visitors, saying that the country’s YWCA is pleased to receive them.
“I would say as far as I know this is the first cohort of foreigners who have interested and curios to know the ongoing recycling programme YWCA has in place.
“It is good to have this kind of activities practiced in our Ministries, organisations, societies and family because it did contribute to the positive impact of our environment,” said Lai.
