Work with groups

DISTRICT representatives at the recent Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting have been told to capitalise on the various community-based groups within their districts.

Speaking during the Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting assistant roko tui Cakaudrove Sara Bulutani told the council that these groups often had access to grants that if used wisely could foster development within their districts.

"Groups such as women's groups, youth groups and other faith-based groups have access to grants from their stakeholders and partners that if used wisely can be a way of ushering in development in your districts," Mr Bulutani said.

"There is a need to strengthen and reinforce our community-based groups and use the grants available to them for developing our districts.

"Cakaudrove has a wide range of groups as such thriving in its districts but they are not used properly," he said.
