VILLAGERS of Vunidogoloa in Cakaudrove are expected to occupy their new homes in Kenani at the end of this month.

The villagers are being relocated to Kenani, about one kilometre inland from the current village site.

The relocation program was initiated by the government through the Ministry of Provincial Development.

Acting commissioner northern Alipate Bolalevu said 30 houses had been completed at the site.

"The program also included some agricultural schemes to help villagers with their food supply and income-generation source," he said.

"We have completed it (program) and right now, we are just waiting for the Prime Minister's Office to confirm the date of the official opening.

"Hopefully, the villagers can move into their new homes at the end of this month."

Mr Bolalevu earlier said the program cost $427,446.75.

Of this figure, $360,000 was set aside for the relocation project, $10,274.86 for bee farming and $57,171.89 for fish farming.

The villagers are the first to be relocated in the country as a result of rising sea level.
