Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, February 05, 2013

AS part of its efforts in promoting the US to the local community, the US Embassy organised its first-ever road show in Savusavu yesterday.

Officiated by the US Ambassador to Fiji, Frankie Reed, the event was held at the Planters Club.

In a statement, the embassy's regional media affairs specialist Snehal Morris said the show was aimed at informing people about its work and the service it provided to the people of Fiji.

"This is also a day to interact with the Savusavu people as we visit the town library, schools and other special project sites in the area," Ms Morris said.

"The ambassador will be visiting the Virgin Coconut Oil site in Wailevu today and also the nearby sandalwood tree project as well as the library in the village.

"We have heard excellent things about these community projects, made possible with government support, and we are proud that our Peace Corps volunteers have contributed in small ways to these projects successes."

Meanwhile, Ms Reed met with Peace Corps volunteer Folami Islam at the Savusavu Library over the weekend as part of her visit to the area.

Ms Reed was briefed on how the library played a vital role for the people of Savusavu and on a new program titled Globetrotting, that educates young children between the ages of eight to 14 about different countries around the world.

The program also provides an opportunity for children to learn about the different languages, foods, people, cultures and traditions.

The US Embassy in Suva is also accredited to the Kingdom of Tonga and Nauru.

It promotes diplomatic and bilateral relations between the US and the three countries it is accredited to.
