CONSTRUCTION work on the $1.3million Cakaudrove Women's Resource Centre is expected to begin by late February as the committee needs to finalise paperwork before the project begins.

"The project is expected to finish by September or October," said Adi Salaseini Kavu, a trustee of the Soqosoqo Vakamarama Cakaudrove.

"This is an interesting project for the women in the province as plans are already underway to have the house as a sort of museum dedicated to the preservation of art and everything (from) Cakaudrove," Adi Salaseini said.

"Women will play a major role in ensuring these artefacts and other works such as stories are preserved at this centre, a part of the centre will be set aside for women to sell their wares," she added.

Adi Salaseini said they envisioned the building to be a repository for everything that is unique to the province and its people.

"Women of Cakaudrove are proud to be a part of this important project and it just shows how we are fulfilling our duties as mothers of the province in ensuring that our culture and our identity are not lost to the changing era that we face," she said.
