Lower Panatina Creek in East Honiara will soon benefit from a newly built Jacobs ladder which is currently in construction process.
The project started last month and will be completed any time this week.
The project is being funded by the World Bank and it is coordinated by the Rapid Employment Program initiated the by the Honiara city council (HCC).
Lots of community in Honiara have benefited from this programme and now Lower Panatina will soon benefit from this program as well.
Panatina Youth Alliance for Change (PYAC) was engaged in the Rapid Employment Program to build the much needed project for the community.
PYA Cleader Christopher Baeri said, that as one of the members of the community, he is eager to secure a funding that can do something to benefit the community.
“I joined the rapid employment programme in 2013 and my vision is to let the authority to know me and my community and now I’m very happy to get this project considered,” he said.
He said that a total of 21 members of Youth for Alliance for Change who are also from the community are involved in the project and will continue to work for 21days which will be completed this week.
“I know my community will be happy to use this newly built Jacobs ladder because they will now walk comfortably to their house in spite of heavy rain or mud which makes it hard to walk.
“Most of all, our young school children will be able to attend school during bad weather as mud and slippery road usually stop students from attending school in the past,” he added.
“I would to thank the Rapid Employment Program and the World Bank for their consideration and support through this much needed project.”
