Journo launches book

THE 'D Book' that highlights the development work done by the Foundation for Rural Integrated Enterprises and Development (FRIEND) was officially launched at the Pacific Theological College in Nasese on Wednesday.

The book, written by journalist and FRIEND public relations manager Samisoni Pareti focuses on the development work that FRIEND Fiji has done over the years and how it has impacted the lives of many in the Western Division.

Mr Pareti said the letter D in the book stands for dreaming, daring and delivering, which was something that the Lautoka-based non-government organisation was doing in the past years, especially during the aftermath of Tropical Cyclone Evan and the two massive floods that hit the west last year.

"It sums up the philosophy of the non-government organisation called FRIEND that I was contracted to write about it under the AusAID funding," Mr Pareti said.

"It took me about two months to compile and I was contracted at the end of October last year, so I had to work from November and December to collect my materials and interview people for the book."

The 'D Book' is the first to be written by the author and is available at some of the bookshops in the country and at FRIEND.
