Call to prioritise projects funding

Torika Tokalau

COMMUNITIES without access to safe and clean water should take the first step and prioritise their fundraising.

Fiji co-ordinator of the European Union Global Climate Change Alliance Naushad Yakub said NGOs had programs set up to assist such communities.

He said, however, a community's initiative to fundraise for a beneficial project indicated how seriously they wanted it.

"Communities can raise money for other things," Mr Yakub said.

"The biggest structure in a community is a church. And I mean no offence by this but if they can raise money for a church, which is good, I am sure they can raise money for water which is a necessity.

"And when you have an amount raised, it's an indication that this community is serious about the need to have water and have already taken steps to getting to that goal."
