Dear group members,
My name is Valérie Mendes de León and I am a Dutch master student in International Politics. I am currently writing my Master thesis and I am very interested in the Pacific Islands, and Kiribati in particular. In my research I want to look at the possible prospect of migration as a response to climate change threats. The goal of the research is to really include the voice and opinions of I-Kiribati, instead of the academic or international community’s. I would therefore be very interested to hear your opinions! You don’t need to be an expert on climate change, I am just curious to know what your views are. (Since it is a survey, you can remain anonymous).
Would you want to fill out this survey for me? It will take about 10 minutes of your time and your participation would really help me out!

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
Valérie Mendes de León

These colourful arrivals to KIT, supplied by the Kiribati Facility and supported by the Australian Government, are period products! They are designed to make access to products on campus easier for female students. One of the key reasons behind the project is to empower young women with the choice of products that suits them and remove the stigma often associated with periods.

This is a pilot project that is being driven by the Student Support Services unit who are also offering menstrual hygiene management education along with the products.

How A Little Confidence Can Change Your Life: Raitoka, Bridging Program student at KIT

Raitoka was born with a physical disability and studied up to Form 3 of mainstream schooling. Since leaving school in 2013, Raitoka has been helping at home where she worried that she might be unable to continue her studies.

As part of Kiribati and Australia’s rich partnership, the Australian Government proudly supports the Bridging Program, as an important education and skills pathway for I-Kiribati youth who did not finish high school or who are currently unemployed.

Raitoka Maningare, now 21, was offered a chance to join the Bridging Program through cooperation of the Kiribati Institute of Technology (KIT) and ChildFund Kiribati. Through the Bridging program and together with her parents’ support, Raitoka was able to return to her studies. Her Bridging course includes subjects in English, Basic Construction, and Information Technology.

“Life is inclusive here at KIT” she said. “If not for the little bit of confidence I had in the first place, I wouldn’t have overcome the fear of unknown challenges while studying here at KIT”.

Raitoka has recently returned to complete the Bridging Program after facing some personal challenges. After spending time with family in the outer islands, Raitoka realised the importance of continuing her education via the Bridging Program and returned to Tarawa to resume her studies. Raitoka said she hopes to become a successful government employee in the future.

On Youth and Children’s Day the Australian High Commission would like to congratulate Raitoka and all I-Kiribati young people who’ve achieved so much throughout the year, especially during the uncertainty and challenges of COVID-19.
