Support education, empower children

A COMPANY that has invested heavily in the children in Koro, Lomaiviti, has reiterated the need for continued empowerment of children through education.

Taveuni Development Corporation representative Sachiko Miller Soro said the company truly believed and supported projects that promoted the development of children's education.

While closing the Lomaiviti Festival, she said her parent's company not only focused on developing Koro Island through infrastructure but also in assisting children with their education needs.

Mrs Soro said the corporation had assisted schools on Koro Island by providing computers, beds, mattresses for boarding schools, construction of new school facilities and financial assistance for other academic and social activities.

"My parents strongly believe that education is the way in which the people of Koro can move forward which is why they strongly support education," Mrs Soro said.

"There would be no use in raising funds every year at the Lomaiviti Festival if nothing is being done for the development of children.

"That should always be a priority when holding such festival, so that children can benefit."
