Sekonaia Bale is making good use of the assistance provided to him by the Government.

In return, he is now going to teach the youths of Beqa about boat-building.

Acting district officer Suva Dharmend Prasad said: “Sekonaia Bale is a boat-builder on Beqa Island who was assisted by the Government last year in terms of equipment for building boats and teaching people how to build them.

“This will help the people of Beqa learn how to build a boat and Mr Bale is their teacher,” he said.

Sekonaia Bale said: “I am so thankful to the Government for their support and assistance.

“The boat is the best mode of transport when travelling from island to island. I have completed the construction of two boats and I’m selling them for $3000 each,” he said.

He uses these boats to travel to Yanuca, Kadavu and mainland Viti Levu.
