First time sponsors of the 2014 Sugar Festival, Telecom Fiji Limited, hopes to give back to the community.

TFL chief executive officer, Motilal DeSilva, said the industry had always tried to give back to the community.

“Sponsorships as such are means of giving back to the community; at Telecom Fiji we have always placed great importance in community projects,” he said.

“Our association with this event is yet another platform of achieving this.”

Mr DeSilva hopes to build a sustainable business with assistance of technology to schools.

“We assisted a number of rural schools in Lautoka and across Fiji by donating computers and enabling free broadband internet to enhance education,” Mr DeSilva said.

“Realistically, our younger generations are equipped with great technology and a much friendlier learning environment.”

TFL hopes to continue supporting the Sugar Festival in the upcoming years.

“We are pleased to be associated with the event and we are glad to know that this collaboration will aid towards the betterment of the residents around the Lautoka area,” he said.

“We shall also continue to support such initiatives and strive towards building a stronger and a better Fiji.”

The Sugar Festival Association president, Brijesh Chandra, was thankful to TFL for sponsoring the one-week event.

“My sincere thanks to Telecom Fiji Limited for being the major sponsor for the festival, this is the first time and it has created history for both parties,” Mr Chandra said.

“It is also good to see that TFL has a contributing part to the profit to the charitable course and we hope that they will continue to be our major sponsors in the future.”

There are eight Queen contestants that will compete for the Miss 2014 TFL Sugar and five King contestants.
