YOUTHS have a role to play in reducing gender base violence (GBV) in the country, says Nairy Alamu of Family Support Centre (FSC).

HAVING completed the secondary level of education in the country many young people often thought that this is the end of their achievement in life without alternative opportunity to continue in securing employment.
The Youth at Work initiative has brought a positive opportunity for heartfelt eagerness of young people known as ‘Masta Luis’ to continue in striving and committed for an employment.

The criminal law in Solomon Islands does no favors to women or a victim of any gender based offences says Judge Justice Stephen Pallaras.
Justice Pallaras was speaking at the National Women’s Day celebration this week at National Museum grounds.
“My background is as a lawyer and a judge – specifically in the area of criminal law. I have been in practice for 38 years. I’m not particularly qualified to talk about Solomon Islands women and issues relating to health, family affairs, women’s development, education or the participation of women in the economy to increase their economic status. And so I won’t. Others probably will.”
I do know a little bit however about the role that the criminal law plays in the life of our citizens and particularly in the lives of our women.
