You maybe out of sight but not out of our mind.

This was a statement made by the Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development, Environment and Waterways Mahendra Reddy while speaking to the villagers of Saqani in Cakaudrove yesterday.

It was his first visit to Saqani village for the commissioning of the Senidilo Women’s Group Homestay Project with an investment of more than $38,000.00.

Club leader Meresiana Sinu said the women had been working tirelessly together for the betterment of their village.

So far they had completed major projects including their village hall, kindergarten school for Saqani, a resource centre, flush toilets for 27 households and yesterday the opening of their homestay.

The homestay will be open to the public next year after they finalise a policy.

The rate would be $30 for locals and $50 for Non-Government Organisations and tourists per night. The money raised will go towards the village developments and other urgent needs.

More than 28 women are members of the club.

Other issues discussed:

– Mr Reddy and his team including the Permanent Secretary for Rural and Maritime Development David Kolitagane has guaranteed that the issues raised by the villagers would be dealt with as soon as possible.

The issues raised include the request for the government’s assistance in the provision of solar power, a proper water supply system and a few other issues.

Mr Reddy had asked the solar team to visit the village next week.
