THIS year Young Women Christian Association Solomon Islands (YWCA SI) is planning to work closely with People with Disability Solomon Islands (PWDSI) in terms of empowering them with their yearly established programmes.
This was confirmed by the General Secretary of YWCA SI Mrs Joycelyn Lai in an exclusive interview yesterday.
She said PWDSI has been a target group her organisation has eyed to work closely with by investing in them.
However the programme must be of gender quality hence it’s inclusive for all people with special needs.
“We desired to empower them in relation to leadership, skills activities and other ways they can venture into to enable them to generate income.
Lai said YWCA SI has seen PWSDI needs that needed to be addressed hence they step in as a supportive arm.
She adds that there will be challenges ahead in terms of finance but they will find possible ways to keep the partnership and the programs soon to be carried will go well.
