October was a very busy month at CWC, as we welcomed and hosted several CWC supporters at the SM Poll Memorial Center and Wellness Facility.

Representatives from Sendai Ikuei Gakuen High School and from Sendai Rotary Club of Japan, Mr. Takehiko Katoh, Mr. Jun Ogata and Mr. Toru Igarashi visited and toured CWC.  Both organizations are strong supporters of our work at CWC and our educational efforts with local schools. To that end, Sendai Ikuei Gakuen High School has generously donated conference tables and chairs, as well as, school desks and chairs.  These are much needed items for our workshops and training activities, and the classroom furniture will be put to good use by school children.    

Staff members, Soni Malaulau and Dr. Michael Roguski from the Pacific Prevention Domestic Violence Programme (PPDVP) based out of New Zealand, visited and toured our facility.  PPDVP works with local police and community organizations in the Western and South Pacific to end violence against women.  We have had a long-standing relationship with PPDVP, and they have supported our efforts to educate the Chuukese people about domestic violence.  Most recently, PPDVP underwrote our very successful Mother and Daughter/Father and Son family violence workshops that were held this past June.

 


Finally, we welcomed several members of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Church (LDS) including Mr. Bill Davis, Mr. Ty Johnson, Mr. Koji Kodama and Mr. Hans Sorensen.  Over the last year, the LDS Church has donated supplies and resources to CWC to help enhance and improve existing programs.  They have provided us with books for the resource library, baby clothes and blankets for the mother and child program, sewing machines for the micro-enterprise projects, glucose strips and body measurement scales for the healthy lifestyle program, musical instruments for the summer camps, seeds for home gardening efforts, and a camera to document all our activities.  We are truly grateful to them for their overwhelming support!
