President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau yesterday officiated at the 2014 Fiji Children’s Award at the Pure Fiji gallery in Vatuwaqa.

“You are leaders who have shown initiative, vision and the courage to make things happen for the better,” he said.

“The one thing that you all have in common is that by virtue of your actions and leadership qualities, you stand out from the rest of the nominees.

“Children are the nation’s future. The nation has a collective responsibility to help them in every way it can with the development of our children. We must inculcate in children the values of honesty, respect, responsibility, hard work, fairness, caring, civic virtue and good citizenship.”

The award is an initiative of Vision Fiji. It recognises the hard work of children for a two-year period. The nominations come from the parents, guardians, relatives, friends and neighbours or anyone who has been touched by the hard work of a youngster.

Mohammed Faruk Khan, 16,

Rohit Kumar, 17, and Adi Ema Tuidriva 13, were the Children’s Award recipients.

Mereseini Tuidriva’s daughter, Adi Ema Tuidriva, received the Fiji Children’s Award yesterday.

“My husband is a school teacher at Waicoba District School and I feel so humble to witness this event,” Mrs Tuidriva said.

“Adi Ema is a girl who always made sure that she offers help to anyone who needs it especially in school and is usually doing things without being told,”she said.
