THIRTEEN students living with disabilities graduated with certificates in Baking Patisserie and Basic Financial Management at the Labasa Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons centre last Friday.

The graduation ceremony was held alongside the council's open day where students displayed various products they created during a one-month workshop.

Products on display included desserts, lamps, torch and other crafts that were also up for sale.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Labasa FNCDP centre manager Niumai Marama Donu said the workshop was aimed at creating livelihoods for people living with disabilities in Labasa.

Ms Donu told graduates they could now actively contribute to their family and community's livelihood through money generated from the sale of the products they were taught to make during the workshop.

Also speaking at the workshop, the council's director Dr Sitiveni Yanuyanutawa commended participants for their achievements.

Dr Yanuyanutawa told graduates it was important to educate themselves.
