Save the Children Australia’s Solomon Islands office is undertaking a groundbreaking project on alcohol and violence entitled: “Supporting Youth in Dealing with Alcohol Use to Reduce Violence against Women and Children in Solomon Islands” (abbreviated as the Youth and Alcohol Project). In June 2016, the office commissioned a gender analysis regarding alcohol and violence which would be applicable to its ten project sites, five situated around the towns of Honiara, Guadalcanal, and five situated around Auki, Malaita, conducted by Dr Anouk Ride. She also prepared a discussion guide for youth leaders to use in communities to engage all youth in participatory exercises which would increase their conflict resolution and protective behaviour skills.
