Women’s group empowers colleagues through trainings

In an effort to inspire women, the Women Empowering Women group, in West New Britain Province, will be training their counterparts in roles and responsibilities and financial literacy.

The Dami WEW site group saw seven women, as the first batch, participate in a two-day training on financial literacy while the Mosa main site WEW Group registered over 25 members for their roles and responsibility training. More members will be trained on life skills in the coming months.

The New Britain Palm Oil Ltd Women Empowering Women in their AGM in April elected their office bearers. Three new nominees took up the chairperson, vice-chairperson and treasurer roles while the secretary and public relations officer posts remain.

WEW’s outgoing chairperson since the inception of the association in December 2011, Lillian Holland, and treasurer Sila Luke, were recognised for their tireless efforts, commitment and contribution to the development and management of the group.

The new executives for the next term are;

Ruth Jordan-Som – chairperson

Jennie Wanera – vice-chairperson

Lydia Tunian – secretary

Ada Edo – treasurer

Diane Mirio – public relations officer

Patrons – Harry and Nancy Brock

The NBPOL Women Empowering Women Association’s theme for the next two years is “Strengthening families” (Strongim femili) and will involve programs and activities surrounding the family unit within all NBPOL operations in West New Britain.
