$30k resource centre

CONSTRUCTION of the $30,000 Namotomoto Women's Resource Centre in Nadi will allow villagers to earn a living by supplying school uniforms.

According to Namotomoto Women's Club president Sereima Lutumailagi, the government-funded facility will provide rural women with employment.

"Sewing is the major activity for our club and we have 40 registered members in the club who will make school uniforms that will be supplied to Nadi District School, Nadi Primary School and Ratu Navula School," she said.

"These uniforms will be sold at prices ranging from as low as $8 to $10. We will also ensure that all the members in our group have a savings account for themselves.

"Apart from uniforms, we also hope to sew items like table cover, cushion and pillow cases."

Mrs Lutumailagi also said about 600 people were expected to benefit from this.

"Some of the families are poor and I know of some children who have only one pair of school uniform that they wear for the rest of the year.

"We hope to assist children from such families to get proper school uniforms and in this regard we will also be liaising with the Education Ministry."
