World Vision Solomon Islands successfully held a two-day virtual meeting for its senior staff at Heritage Park Hotel in Honiara this week.
The meeting allowed senior staff heads within the different departments of the organisation to share information on plans and their responsibilities to each other. They also discussed areas that matter towards improving the organisation’s operations.
During the two days, the participants were also able to attend trainings especially on Safeguarding. World Vision as a Christian organization is advocating for the protection of children thus safeguarding is key where every staff within the organisation must understand to ensure their conducts and the conducts of citizens they are working with uphold such principle. The topics covered in this training included child-labour, safeguarding on social media and many more topics. Corruption was also covered in their trainings.
The safeguarding training was conducted by World Vision Safe-Guarding Focal Point for Asia Pacific Arpana Rongong.
On the first day of the meeting, five representatives from World Vision Partner, the MFAT from New Zealand High Commission also attended to listen to the safeguarding training.
National Director Jimmy Nadapdap said such meetings is important because staff can share their challenges and identify action plans to address such challenges.
He further highlighted the meeting this week is the first of many senior meetings in the future.
Held from Tuesday to Wednesday, the participants included Senior Staff from Country Program Office (CPO) and area programs especially in Temotu, Makira and Malaita Area programs. Two participants were also full time virtually joined in from Australia and Vanuatu.
