A SKILLS training workshop on embroidery will allow a new source of income for 20 women in Fiji.
The workshop 'Embroidery Skills Training' is partnership between the Indonesian Embassy and the Ministry of Women.
Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation Dr Jiko Luveni said the training would open up new income-generating opportunities for the women.
"I witnessed these embroidery products during one of my visits to Indonesia this year and knew that the skills would be an asset to the women," she said.
Dr Luveni said the ministry was committed to providing new income-generating opportunities for women to add value to their skills.
"The onus is on trainees to equip themselves with embroidery skills and use that as a source of income," she said.
