Youths help out

YOUTHS of Lakeba Village in Namuka, Macuata have heightened their weekly duty to assist widows by planting their food. Youth leader Saimone Nakaikirini said they planted cassava, dalo and vegetables for families without fathers. "It's a project that we've been doing and will continue because some widows have young children who can't farm yet," Mr Nakaikirini said.

Right to talk

VILLAGE elders of Wainigadru in Cakaudrove have allowed any villager to speak during village meetings. Village headman Bonefasio Driti said even the children were allowed to voice their views over issues they felt were of concern. He said the voices of the children had always been heard and respected by traditional leaders.
