Members of the Muanaicake Village Youth Club in Vutia, Rewa had a good reason to celebrate last Saturday.

They completed a $2000  footpath through the village.

A spokesperson for the youths, Ananaiasa Cavacava, said it would keep feet dry during the wet weather.

The ground was always soggy and muddy when it rained, he said.

The celebration also marked the first completed project in their five-year development plan.

The other two projects are a new sturdy bridge and a seawall because of climate change. The seawall will prevent soil erosion and keep water out during unusually high tides.

Mr Cavacava said they had a small group but unity and commitment helped them build the footpath.

He said the other two projects were equally challenging. He said these were self help projects designed to  protect the villagers from the unavoidable impacts of climate change.

“The footpath is also symbolic for us. Despite the small size of our group, this project inspires us to undertake bigger projects,” Mr Cavacava said.

“I wish to thank all those who donated their time and labour to get this project completed.”
