The Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation yesterday donated $1800 to the Pacific Disability Forum.
The donation is to be used for women with disability who want to start up a businesses.
Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation chief executive, Mereia Volavola, said: “The funding was made possible through contributions made by participants at their regional conference for Women in Business held in November last year.”
At the conference, she said, Pacific Islands Private Sector Organisation had highlighted the challenges faced by disabled women who were engaged in business.
This caught the attention of the participants who eagerly contributed to this worthy cause.
To top it all off, the managing director of Senikai Spas, and Principal of the South Pacific Academy of Beauty Therapy, Debra Sadranu has offered 10 free Certificate courses in manicures and nail care for disabled women in Fiji.
The one-week courses are valued at $370 each and will be conducted at one of the Senikai Spas in Nadi.
Ms Sadranu said she thought about helping those women in wheelchairs and by this initiative they could be equipped with a skill for business.
The Pacific Disability Forum was established in 2002.
It works towards inclusive, barrier-free, and gender-equitable societies that recognise the human rights, contribution and potential of people with disabilities in Pacific countries and territories.
