WOMEN of Namotomoto Village in Nadi now have a resource centre where they can explore economic opportunities.

Opening the centre, Minister for Women and Social Welfare Dr Jiko Luveni said the Namotomoto Women's Resource Centre offered an ideal place for women to gather and pursue similar interests.

"The opportunity to open another women's resource centre means that we have delivered what we promised this year," she said.

"This demonstrates government's commitment to institutionalise women's programs and services in communities such as yours.

"My government is very serious on empowerment of Fijian women and today's event is a mark of this."

She said through government, an environment for women to live lives free of violence had been enabled.

"The Women's Resource Centre program is one of the many programs of my government to help alleviate poverty by banking on the skills and entrepreneurial roles of women as women are indeed, convincing agents of change."

Dr Luveni added the Namotomoto Women's Resource Centre was special as it was centrally situated and accessible to all women of the Nadi community.
