Speaking at the launch of the YWCA history book Tuesday, Mrs Ariki said the event shows progress and achievements the organisation had gained over the past three decades.
She said some of the key achievements include; YWCA’s signing of its strategic plan in 2009,signed partnership agreement with the Pacific Leaders Program(PLP) under AusAid in 2010,Rebuilding of their burnt down Kindergarten in 2010,signed partnership with Family Planning of New Zealand in 2011,the election of Alice Iwebu(YWCA member) to world YWCA board, working together world YWCA and young women in the pacific to develop to develop young women leadership strategy and the development of YWCA policies and reviewing of their constitution.
Mrs Ariki said these achievements, including the launch of the history book, indicated YWCA is moving in the right direction and looks forward to achieving more great things for the women of this country.
She said without the dedication, commitment and hard work of all members and the support from non government organisations and the government, YWCA would not have come this far.
The president calls for greater cooperation and support from NGOs, the government and the wider community.
“If only the government, NGOs and the country support us in our work to equip and empower our women, we will achieve greater results in the future,” Mrs Ariki said.
