The Provincial Premier of Malaita, Hon. Elijah Asilaua, formally opened the Training of the Trainer Workshop on Monday in Auki, Malaita Province. The five-day training funded by MPGIS’s Integrated Economic Development and Community Resilience project (IEDCR) aims at empowering officers from nine provinces, MECDM, and MPGIS, to be able to conduct training for members of the WDCs and the Ward Support Officers in the 173 wards in the country. The Premier urged participants to take the training more seriously considering the cost and time involved. The training, he said, is very relevant to participants as it will give them the right skills and knowledge to be trainers.

The Deputy Secretary, Governance, Mr Robert Kaua, stated that the training of 70 officers will increase the number of provincial-level facilitators who will be using standardized materials for WDC training and at the same time reduce capacity development costs and ensure sustainability in the long run.

The five-day training shall cover participatory planning, social accountability framework, including gender inclusion, and conflict resolution. The training is divided into two batches, with the first batch from 10th-14th June, including officers from Malaita, Guadalcanal, Temotu, Rennell & Bellona, Isabel provinces, and MPGIS. The second batch’s training would start on June 17-21, 2024 for officers from Central, Choiseul, Makira Ulawa, and Western Provinces.
