THE Fiji National University (FNU) has confirmed its sponsorship for Fiji’s first-ever Disability Gala Awards Nite organised by the United Blind Persons of Fiji (UBP).

The Gala Awards Nite chairperson, Rajnel Prasad, said the UBP was grateful to the FNU for showing its support, and being the first official sponsor would boost the event.

FNU vice-chancellor Professor Nigel Healey said it was only fitting the university worked with such organisations that assured each person had access to quality tertiary education.

“Too often we are immersed in our own worlds. We have to become more responsible and as Fiji’s national university, I believe that it is important that we take the lead in such initiatives,” Prof Healey said.

The awards event will be held on October 27 at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.
