Fiji will soon sign a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with Barefoot College in Rajasthan, India to train more locals in the field of engineering and science.

Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama revealed this while welcoming Fiji's first solar engineers who graduated from the College after six months of training.

 “This partnership has taken to another level and a MOU is expected to be signed between Fiji and Barefoot College in starting two new projects for women in Fiji," he said.

The first one is the manufacturing of sanitary pads using raw materials in rural areas at reasonable costs. PM said that if adopted in Fiji, it will reduce Fiji’s imports of sanitary pads.

The second initiative that would be introduced is production of educational toys for children in preschools, using recycling products such as plastic bags.

Bainimarama added that this will be in line with the government’s commitment to create economic opportunities for women in Fiji as new women resource centres is expected to open this year around the country.

“These centres are adopting the ‘one centre, one raw material’ concept as it is better to concentrate on a definite key product and perfect it rather than do a little bit of everything and compromise quality and supply."

 “With the achievement by Iliesa Delena followed by solar grandmothers has framed a progressive pathway for Fiji and in the coming days I am confident that these 10 grandmothers will gear up for more successful stories to be unveiled," he concluded.
