THE President of the Solomon Islands Ship for World Youth Ambassadors Alumni Association Solomon Islands (SWYAASI), Paul Amoa, expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the Japan Government, through the Embassy of Japan, for extending an invitation and providing an incredible opportunity for our youths to join other participants from around the world.
The successful applicants—David Oeta Junior, Patricia Joyce Suri, Frelin Houkeni, Harrison Soni, Haylinta Katovai, Ghandie Mavaemua, Edelah Leoa Animanu, Lyndema Kotisaia Leovania, and Elizabeth Gore—were selected after being shortlisted and interviewed based on their active engagements in various fields, including communities, churches, sports, academics, voluntarism, and professional work.
These participating youths will join other young people from 14 countries around the world and Japan in various trainings and exchange activities while participating in a “hybrid program” that combines online exchange through information and communication devices from their home countries with face-to-face exchange on board the ship and at ports of call after their arrival in Japan.
SWYAASI recognizes and acknowledges the undeniable impact of this program.
Participants who have been fortunate enough to be part of this initiative return with invaluable experiences, enabling personal growth and a global perspective in their thinking and actions.
With the generous support of the Ministry of Women, SWYAASI has been able to ensure that all necessary arrangements are in place for the delegation’s departure on January 23rd and return on February 22nd.
The smooth execution of these preparations would not have been possible without the assistance and guidance provided by the Embassy.
SWYAASI would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to the Embassy for their unwavering support of this program.
We strongly encourage the youth who will be participating this year to seize this opportunity to learn, network, and become ambassadors for world peace.
This program is a platform for them to showcase their potential and contribute to a brighter future for all.
SWYAASI remains committed to supporting and empowering our youth, and we are grateful to the Japanese government for their continuous efforts in fostering global connections and understanding.
