FAMILY Support Centre (FSC) has this week engaged youths in West Honiara to fight gender based violence in their communities.

Nairy Alamu of FSC said under a two years project funded by UN Women, the FSC will engage youths in Honiara to advance their knowledge on the cross cutting issue of violence.

15 young men and women from Ngossi and Tasahe Community on Thursday concluded two days of workshop facilitated by FSC.

This is the second group to have completed the workshop. The first group comes from White River Community.

Sophia Munamua of Public Solicitors Office also gave talks to the youths on the services that the PSO is providing to rid violence in the Solomon Islands.

She said 99 percent of women want a total end of gender based violence in the homes.

According to Mrs. Alamu the project will expand to other communities in Central and West Honiara.
