Women vital to nation building

WOMEN sew ho­pe in a world faced with challenges and hardships, says Roko Tui Dreketi Ro Teimumu Kepa.

Officiating at the Fiji Catholic Women's League annual general meeting in Solevu Bua on Friday morning, Ro Teimumu told women now was the time when women should reach out to people in their communities as light bearers and a symbol of hope.

Ro Teimumu told league members the hibernation period for Catholic women was now over.

She urged women to stand up and be a source of encouragement to their peers and members of their communities.

She told women if they failed to play their part then no one else would and the fate of their communities would grow worse.

She said as guardians women played an important role in the development of their children.

Ro Teimumu urged them not to belittle their young ones because they were the future citizens of Fiji.

She said the hope of the nation lay on these young ones and their upbringing from their mothers played a significant role in the type of Fijians the future would have.

Ro Teimumu said it was time women took ownership of their homes and communities and helped drive the country forward.
