Dreams of a group of women from Namuka Village in Nakelo, Tailevu, have finally been answered.

This is after they departed for Sydney, Australia, yesterday morning.

The 16 women have always wanted to travel overseas and have been fundraising for the trip for a long time. Trip organiser Inoke Kama said as part of the three-week trip, the group would perform at the Fiji Day celebrations that would be officiated by Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama in Sydney.

Mr Kama said the women would also be going on a cruise at the Sydney Harbour with Mr Bainimarama.

“They have been fundraising for more than a year for this trip and now they have finally achieved what they wanted,” he said.

Mr Bainimarama leaves next Friday for the Fiji Day celebration in Sydney on October 17.
