THE New Special Coordinator for RAMSI Justine Braithwaite has identified Gender and the protection of Family as an issue for which RAMSI would take on over the period of her leadership.
In a statement to Sunday Isles, Mrs Braithwaite explained that Gender has been a very trying issue in Solomon Islands and a lot of cases involving gender have been identified.
She said that the protection of family is important for society and therefore gender will be at the core of her responsibilities.
She added that her support for the protection of family is wise and therefore it is one of her many priorities to ensure women and their rights are protected in Solomon Islands.
“I believe that family has a huge value and keeping it together is what I feel I must do for women in Solomon Islands.”
Mrs Justine Braithwaite is the first female Special coordinator since RAMSI came in Solomon Islands in 2003.
