There is a lot of money floating around in Fiji markets compared to the tourism industry says Dr Jiko Luveni, Minister for Women, Social Welfare and Poverty Alleviation.

Speaking at the Opening of the Fiji Police Women Officers Network in Nasese today, she said this was identified by a recent research conducted by UN Women.

This comment comes after Dr Luveni urged women to manage their money well.

Addressing female police officers, she said there is a need to upgrade the knowledge of women in Fiji.

While doing community visitations, the ministry aims to target its all women in Fiji need to have an improved formal and informal education.

She said some working mothers tend to forget to support their children’s education.

“Education does not end in school, it continues at home. That is where we (women) come in.”

She added it is very important to engage in social meetings such as community groups and clubs to broaden their knowledge and network.

Meanwhile, Dr Luveni advises men to love their wife everyday like the first day they met.

She said to eliminate violence in women, they will need to have the support of the community.

“We need happy women for happy children in a happy family.”

Dr Luveni reiterates female officers to always look towards their goal to achieve it.

The group was formed under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed between the police and the ministry to develop co-operation in advancing gender equality and violence free programme in Fiji.
