UN Women and the European Union (EU) have joined forces with civil-society and the government in Solomon Islands to drive sustainable and innovative action to achieve increased women’s political participation and strengthen inclusive access to justice.
VENDORS at two key marketplaces in Solomon Islands are set to benefit from a new UN Women project that will inject more than SBD$20 million into making markets safe working environments that promote women’s empowerment through improved market governance, physical infrastructure, and onsite services.
Last week marks the YWCA Week without Violence. YWCA of the Solomon Islands joined other YWCAs around the world in recognising the week which falls on 14 to 20 October. The theme of the week focuses on the campaign to end early, child and forced marriage.
