Ten Fijian grandmothers who are undergoing 6-month solar electrification training at the Barefoot College in India will graduate this month.

This was revealed by Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni who will be attending their graduation ceremony.

“Once they come back, the 10 grandmothers will be expected to solar electrify their villages,” Luveni said.

“Workshops will be constructed and they will take on their roles as the solar engineers of Fiji to solar electrify their own villages.

While in India, Luveni will also witness the signing of an MOU with the Barefoot College to secure assistance for two new projects planned for women in Fiji.

 “One is about the manufacturing of sanitary pads using raw materials in rural areas at reasonable costs. If adopted in Fiji it will reduce our imports of sanitary pads. The second initiative is the production of educational toys for children in preschools, using recyled products such as plastic bags.”

Luveni said the two projects are in line with the government’s commitment to create economic opportunities for women in Fiji.
