The Nabau Women’s Club catering business at the Semo Resource Centre located near the Queens Road is an ideal place for travelling members of the public to take a break, rest and enjoy a meal.

For the last two years the club was planning to upscale and fully utilise the centre to sell food, cold drinks as well as hot meals and BBQ at night.

Club spokesperson Torika Cakau said their plan could now be realised because the $2500 they received from Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation would help them buy a refrigerator, steamers and catering utensils.

“We are also mindful that we can sell healthy food and drinks like lemon, sour sap and other fresh fruit juices,” Mrs Cakau said.

“Our dream project is coming true this 2018 and we are excited. This project will support the unemployed village women provide for their families and fulfil the needs of children in our village.”

The success stories told by other village women and youth are indeed inspiring older clubs that are now being revived.

“We are going around doing handovers, sharing successful project ideas and creative tips from other clubs,” project officer Mr Roneet Prasad said.

“We want village clubs to share inspiring stories and to keep upscaling their income generation projects which will in turn help villagers support their families.

The Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation funded the Nabau Women income generation projects and continues to address the needs of the community.

“We have reporting requirements to share projects progress and pictures on social media to ensure effective monitoring and evaluation which also helps us report back to our donors on the social and economic impacts of the project we fund,” Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation executive member Ambalika Devi Prakash said.

“We welcome clubs to send in their proposals for 2018. This can also be done by villages and communities that have projects which are innovative, creative and can also help groups generate revenue to be reinvested into worthy projects identified by the clubs.”
