Community agencies, Government representatives and community folk gathered at the Island Council Conference Room in Arutanga from Monday to Wednesday this week for PTI’s first workshop for 2015 in the Pa Enua. The workshop covered Human Rights Conventions and information, an introduction to the Cook Islands Family Health and Safety Survey, new legislation for dealing with domestic violence in the Cook Islands (Family Law Bill) and what each division (Internal Affairs, Justice, community agencies such as NCW etc) do in support services for women and children in need. Many, many thanks to Punanga Tauturu Inc Aitutaki representative Tepaeru Cameron for her wonderful work!!
