THE Fiji Volleyball Federation (FVF) Pacific Volleyball Partnership (PVP) has organised a Sports and Gender workshop for the village headmen of the province of Rewa.

The four-day workshop, which ends today, was officially opened by the Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa, at Nabalili, Rewa on Monday.

Ro Teimumu encouraged the participation of women in sports to promote healthy lifestyle.

The workshop was organised by the federation through its partners and was aimed at educating 54 headmen on the subject.

"The Fiji Volleyball Federation (FVF) is embarking on a program that aims to get women physically active in an effort to reduce the risk factors of non communicable diseases," a statement from the federation said.

"Fiji Volleyball acknowledges and thanks all our partners who have made this workshop possible."

Meanwhile, a women's volleyball tournament to be held this Saturday has been organised for the district of Burebasaga.

The tournament is supported by Ministry of Heath (Wellness Unit), BSP Life, Village 6 Cinemas, Fiji Times (Kaila), Fiji Women's Crisis Centre, FRCA, ANZ and Fiji Fashion Week.
