$5900 for electricity

NAVILAWA Village in the district of Yakete, Ba, will need to raise about $5000 for the implementation of a rural electrification project.

Village headman Filimone Botitu said the village had a quotation from the Fiji Electricity Authority which required $5912 for the project.

"We have been assured and our application has been approved to have electricity supplied in the village but it's about finding the time to raise that money," he said.

"Times are difficult but we will get our people to find means to raise that money so that we can have electricity supplied to the village."

He said apart from the rural electrification project, the village also wanted to expand its kindergarten which was officially opened last month.

"The infant school is just the start," he said.

"This is mainly to keep our young children near home because right now most of them are sleeping in hostels at Nalotawa District School.

"We have about six students who are in classes one to seven living away from home and they only return home at the end of each term.

"Parents are also finding it difficult to be away from their children and for some they have to go to the school twice in one term to look after all the children and cook for them."
