Taqua's participation was funded by the United States Olympic Committee and IOC's Olympic Solidarity Program. He started the program last September. The final module of the program is expected to be concluded in May.

Taqua was among coaches from Bahamas, Bhutan, Bosnia, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Gambia, Grenada, Indonesia, Jordan, Lesotho, Macedonia, Malaysia, Maldives, Nigeria, Oman, Palestine, Peru, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sudan, Suriname, Taiwan, Uruguay, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Taqua is helping national coach Joe Vueti in Baba, Levuka in Ovalau. He represented Fiji at the 2011 Pacific Games in New Caledonia where he won gold.
