THE “Mai Vale” program was launched at Nasali Village in Rewa today.

Permanent secretary for the Ministry of Women Children and Poverty Alleviation Dr Josefa Koroivueta launched the program in the presence of more than a hundred women already part of the program.

“To our women who are out here, I want to congratulate you. We will connect you to train with other women in the community. So that you can train other families if you can liberate them. If you can move this as a national group,” said Dr Koroivueta.

The program allows families living in rural areas to be connected to those in urban areas and vice-versa.

“Our commitment is a full commitment. We are ready for engagement. We want to move this for the whole of Fiji. Not only to Lomaiviti where I come from but to the whole of Fiji.”

Items produced from recycled products which are part of the program was displayed at the launch today.

“Mai Vale” director Aca Mataitini said this was a beginning of something very big to come in future.

“We are not here to compete with anybody. This will take passion, a lot of it. If you don’t have passion, they might as well don’t do it. The first stage is to learn and do things for your own homes. Once you think you have completed the first stage, you can move on to the second stage and start selling your products,” Ro Aca told Fiji Times Online.
