An Update from the Solomon Islands

Watch Reuben Lilo's testimonial during MPI's 2014 Annual Peacebuilding Training.

I really learned a lot from the recent MPI I attended in May 2014 at Mindanao. I have helped to coordinate the facilitation of two separate Trauma Healing Equipping Workshops here in Honiara, Solomon Islands in the first and second week of November. The Workshop was facilitated by American Bible Society for the Ministry staff. The first week was dedicated to the Provincial Staff and the second week was dedicated to the Head Quarter staff.

Every body was so excited as this is the first Trauma Healing workshop ever organized for the Ministry of National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace. With the basic trauma healing training I had in Mindanao, and the resource personnel and friends I interacted with helped to resource me to play the assisting role of assistant facilitator during the workshop. Our Permanent Secretary, Undersecretary of Policy, Undersecretary of Administration, Financial Controller, Human Resource Managers and all subordinate officers were included in the workshop. Such basic training really helped our Ministry to understand some problematic areas in bridging and facilitating our peace and reconciliation programs.
