Sistas Savve Briefing at the Ministry of Women

In October 2012, SIPPA, YWCA and FPI conducted a briefing at the Solomon Islands Ministry of Women, Youth and Children’s Affairs. The focus was on sharing the Sistas Savve curriculum and initial findings, one year into the project. About 15 key staffers from various divisions within the Ministry took part, including the Deputy Permanent Secretary and two directors.

SIPPA Executive Director Michael Salini and YWCA General Secretary Jenta Tau briefed the staff on how integrating SRHR education with financial literacy training has been an effective way of empowering the young women. The Ministry of Women has recently been awarded a grant to the Sistas Savve graduates for supplies that will enable the women to scale up their small businesses.
