Group to travel to China

A GROUP of dancers from a squatter settlement in Lautoka will represent Fiji at a tradeshow in China towards the end of this month.

Known as Fiji Wow, the children of Vunato will perform at the Guangzhou Fair Trade Show scheduled for February 27 to March 1 in Shanghai.

The group, an initiative borne out of the Lautoka Community Policing program three years ago, auditioned for the spot and competed against some known entertainment groups from the Western Division.

Founder Kiso Sova, a former inmate who helped form the group with the police, said the aim was to stop the cycle of crime in the area.

He said the reward of travel abroad was truly a humbling moment for them.
