Former teacher Rosy Sofia Akbar believes her extensive teaching experience and service to the community will hold her in good stead for the 2014 General Elections.
The prospective FijiFirst candidate nominee is passionate about empowering women to become better leaders in society.
“I believe more women need to be part of decision -making polices at community, district, national levels and empowering women in both rural and urban centres will be made possible through education, availability of resources both in terms of finances as well as skills. Rural women must be encouraged to actively participate in community projects, whether it is sports, social obligations or entrepreneurship.’’
Mrs Akbar has worked 24 years in the civil service as a teacher, educator with extensive experience as a community educator.
“I believe that education is the root of any society’s growth. Therefore, with the current Government’s commitment towards education, it is imperative that all children and parents also commit to this cause.
“With increased funding from Government towards the education sector there is a need for standardised educational facilities in all schools which will provide a common platform for the teaching and learning environment. ‘’
She was inspired by the inclusive philosophy of FijiFirst and its commitment to improving the daily lives of ordinary Fijians.
“I chose FijiFirst because FijiFirst is a national movement dedicated to the service of our nation and to the advancement of the well-being of our people. It is my justified belief that FijiFirst is a peoples party and it guarantees ordinary Fijians education , adequate housing and health care, social security and economic prosperity.’’
