Fifty traditional women leaders from across the 14 provinces will take part in the Fiji’s first ‘Marama ni Yavusa Summit’.
The summit, which begins tomorrow and ends on Friday, will be held at the former Great Council of Chiefs complex at Nasese, Suva.
To date, there are 86 traditional women leaders registered. The Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Jiko Luveni, said the summit was a parallel event for Fiji’s first National Women’s Expo that would be staged at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.
“The programme is the first ever to be held and sees a total of 50 traditional women leaders from across the 14 provinces,” Dr Luveni said.
“This will be an opportunity for the traditional women leaders to strengthen their roles. These are traditional women leaders who have inherited the leadership role and have an important role to play in terms of steering positive changes and making decisions for their communities.”
The programme focuses on building the capacity of the Marama ni Yavusa to promote:
n Leadership and good governance principals
n Effective communication skills needed for women leaders
n Confidence-building for leaders
