Focus on child care

EARLY childhood development was a key area of focus for volunteers who helped out at Dratabu Village in Nadi.

Visiting the village on Friday, the group of volunteers from Projects Abroad Fiji helped renovate a playhouse for the village's toddlers.

Built by the Dratabu Women's Club, the playhouse will be used to cater for children under five who will be exposed to fun educational activities.

The clubhouse is also used by the women to sell their handmade craft.

Project co-ordinator Mere Gaunavou said the project was a first of its kind for the village.

"It is important to invest and develop children at an early age," she said.

"In the community, these age groups tend to be neglected as we are more focused on kindergarten age groups four years and above.

"We support the Dratabu Women's Group to work with the community in educating child development and help them to invest in children at an early age."

Dratabu Women's Club leader Timaima Taliga said the group appreciated the help from Projects Abroad Fiji.

"We thank the organisation for doing a great job in painting the playhouse for the children.

"The effort is worth praising surely and our sincere gratitude to Projects Abroad Fiji."
