Youth groups taught how to write proposals
COMMUNITY youth groups in Honiara and Guadalcanal province wound up their writing workshop yesterday at the Multipurpose Hall.
The workshop convened 15y groups registered under Honiara City Council-Youth Division and Honiara Youth Council.
Included in the 15 youth groups were two from Guadalcanal province, Katehana and Niu Birao community, which Oxfam Solomon Islands have worked with over the years.
The importance of this workshop is for community youth leaders to develop final proposal writing applying for small grants under Oxfam Solomon Island’s Statim Faia Project.
The President for Honiara Youth Council, Mr Harry James Olikwailafa said the workshop is significant for youth groups to put together actions into proposals to address community issues.
He said each youth group is required to develop its proposal limited to a budget of SBD$10,000 to a timeframe of six month.
Mr Olikwalafa said the grants will support them address issues which young people commonly face daily at the community level.
The participating youth groups applying for this Statim Faia grants are; Bethlehem Chapel, Koalale, Holy Cross Parish Youth, United Church Youth, SSEC Youth Group and Music gate way, the Milkshake, Kukum SDA Youth, Full of Hope, Helidas Young Women Association, Renlau, United Naha Youth and United Kukum Youth.
