TPUM President Pastor Maveni Kaufononga opened the new wellness centre for Betikama Adventist College on August 31, during his visit to Solomon Islands Mission. Students and staff gathered for the dedication ceremony. Also in attendance were Solomon Islands Mission (SIM) president Pastor Silent Toyosia and ADRA director Stephen Tasker.
The centre is a pilot project that aims to assist students in overcoming negative behaviours. The new space has a room for the college chaplain as well as open area for the students. ADRA Solomon Islands supported the project by helping with office furniture and refurbishment costs.
