More and more people in rural areas in the Northern Division are being given the opportunity to access the worldwide web.

However, a youth group on the Hibiscus Highway, which runs more than 112 kilometres along the southern Savusavu coast, is being access to the web with a difference.

Twenty-five members of the Waisali Youth Club have been given eight tablets to access the internet at no cost.

Club president Abele Tubaba said they were blessed to be the first club to receive such donations.

“The club is very grateful to receive such grants,” Mr Tubaba said.

“The youth has not received such grants from such big organisations like Vodafone before,” he said.

The gadgets were handed to Mr Tubaba by the Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation World of Difference candidate Peni Tabua and Vodafone’s Labasa branch Manager, Clyde Smith.

“Youth members can now use the internet in the village and school students as well can conduct research while doing their assignments,” Mr Tabua said

He said one of the biggest benefits was that youth members and students in the village would save time and money travelling to Labasa or Seaqaqa for internet access.

Mr Tabua said it was a great opportunity for them to have a feel of the latest technology available.

Meanwhile, the club has also built a media centre to house the village members who would use the internet.

This is an incoming-generating project for the youths in the village.
