Education for life program took a lead in fighting
HIV and AIDS in the Western Province.
Speaking during the closing of the 3 days "Education for life seminar" at Kongu village, Mr.Beingasa thanked the church for their contributions and extends it's program not only for catholics but also other Denominations which participated.
He said last year during the early rehabilitation activity, similar programs were requested from camp leaders, although HIV awareness programs from other Non-Government Organisation (NGO) been organised from themselves.
He then said HIV/AIDS topic is now becoming boring in schools and also those who left schools but education for life activity had its style of providing motivations. The workshop ended successful and a total of 40 youths and young couples attended the seminar. The program commenced 7th till 10th July.
The program which is based on the words of St.John 10 vs 10 "I have come that you may have life have it to the fullest.." It is an invitation from the Lord to live lives to their full potential in totally freedom from thinks that influences youth to contract the HIV Virus and total freedom to deepen a personal love relationship with God through Prayer and the sacraments. This program was introduced here in the Solomon Islands last year by Pastoral group from Africa.
