Development of women important

Luke Rawalai
Friday, January 25, 2013

NATIONAL progress can only be achieved through the development of all women.

Minister for Women, Social Welfare and Poverty Alleviation Doctor Jiko Luveni said women were the main contributors of financial development so their development would mean the development of their own families.

Speaking to women of the Manavure, Veilomani and Tabuvakasuka group in Naidi outside Savusavu, Dr Luveni said their projects were evidence of the contribution they're making to enhance development in their own homes and communities.
