FRESH from India, solar engineer Lautani Nabua is eager to train her fellow village women on solar energy electrification.
The 44-year old mum of Waikubukubu in Tavua, is one of the 10 Fijian women who recently returned from a six-month solar engineer training in Barefoot College in Rajasthan, India.
Mrs Nabua said she learnt many new and creative lessons in India and was ready to share her knowledge with her fellow village mothers.
She said her main aim was to assist the villagers in the electrification of their village.
"We don't have electricity in our village and my main project now is to put into practice the knowledge that I have learnt from India," Mrs Nabua said.
"I am confident that I can make a difference in my village by educating women to assist me with the electrification of the village," she said.
"We are just waiting for the materials to come from India before we can start with the project."
Mrs Nabua said the India training allowed her to build a solar light and was prepared to teach other women in the village on this new project.
She also thanked the government and Ba Province for choosing her for the India attachment.
"I am the lone candidate from Ba Province and I thanked the government for having faith in me," Mrs Nabua said.
"Now it is time to give something back to my people and I just cannot wait to start with my new project," she said.
