“Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all the women and girls who applied for a grant. Unfortunately we’re not able to offer a grant to everyone, as much as we’d like to – especially this year when the essays were of a very high standard, making it difficult for the judges to declare the winners,” said Brett Hooker, General Manager, Westpac Fiji.

“Westpac is so proud to be the bank known for its commitment to sustainability.

We know that when women and girls have high levels of education everyone benefits, and for us it’s about creating the most meaningful economic, social and environmental impact that we can,” said Mr Hooker.
