SASA Village will receive a brand new education community centre courtesy of the Cabramatta Fijian Pathfinder Club.

Built at a cost of $25,000 the centre has been established to develop a rapport between the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Sasa Village community.

Cabramatta Pathfinder member Oripa Nabaro said apart from the spiritual aspect of the centre's activities, there were hopes that women and school-aged children could also learn skills that could better their lives.

"Our mission statement is really what we are all about. On the spiritual and emotional side, we hope to establish a pathfinder club at the village by 2013 and develop a Sabbath school by 2014.

"We are also looking at facilitating women and children ministry initiatives such as cooking and sewing demonstrations.

"But our primary objective is to save lives by drawing Sasa villagers and nearby communities to Jesus Christ," she said.

"On the educational side, we hope to develop and enhance educational outcomes for school-aged children and support Sasa Village students in completing homework and assignments," she added.

Ms Nabaro said the president of the SDA in Fiji, Luke Narabe, is scheduled to be the chief guest at the opening of the centre.
