New generation leaders

Rebecca Medhurst
Thursday, March 20, 2014

GRADUATES of the 2012 Fellows of Leadership Fiji program were inducted earlier this month, as Leadership Fiji launched its 2014 program.

Leadership Fiji chairman William Parkinson spoke of the role of these fellows at the launch.

"In preparing the next generation of leaders for our country our focus at Leadership Fiji is not just to educate but to promote real action."

Participants in the program are expected to complete community work in their first year of the program, moving on to much larger tasks in the following year.

The 2012 graduates, as part of their community work, completed workshops on financial literacy, a seedling program with Vuci Methodist School and Jai Narayan College, a clean-up at Suva's botanical gardens and tutorials for students at the Fiji School for the Blind.

Participants in Leadership Fiji programs come from a diverse cross-section of the country, according to Mr Parkinson. The chairman spoke of the participants' commitment to marginalised groups in society when completing their community work.

Leadership Fiji has also announced its partnership with TOTAL (Fiji) Limited. TOTAL (Fiji) Limited has committed $19,000 towards the 2012 Fellows' work in the restoration of the Tavuni Hill Fort heritage site.

Leadership Fiji is also involved in developing leadership programs in the Solomon Islands, Samoa and Papua New Guinea.
