Months of dedication and sacrifice paid off for 15 Live-in Caregivers Diploma graduates from the Onkar Caregivers Training Institute, in Nadi on Friday night.

The institute has been running courses under the Canadian Caregiving franchise programme giving students the much required industry attachment and the competency requirements.

Although a small batch of students graduated it is regarded as a very crucial industry and for one of the graduates, Mohazana Almaz, it is a passion.

“I have always wanted to be involved actively in community services and have been a volunteer caregiver at Nadi Hospital over the years,” she said.

“It is my passion to help children and elderly people.

Ms Almaz said the six months of vigorous training had given a deeper understanding of the things one should do especially for the elderly citizens.

“Elderly citizens are often admitted to old people’s home and deprived of the love, care and attention that they need.

“They (elderly people) were once young and cared for us and we have a moral obligation to care for them,” Ms Almaz stressed.

Meanwhile, Fiji Higher Education Commission’s official, Sereseini Vuki, commended the efforts of the caregivers’ institute.

“This school has been an integral player and contributing to the Government’s strategic goals for most needed skills required at the workplace, particularly the Health and Tourism sectors,” Ms Vuki said.

The staff and management of the institute thank Studz Brothers DJ Group for supporting the event.
