Sixty-eight-year old Kamachi, of Ba­rara, more than 12 kilometres from Sigatoka, was filled with tears of overwhelming joy as she witnessed the official opening of the Barara Grid Exten­sion project on Monday.

This comes after the $22,038 project was officiated by the Minister for Infrastruc­ture and Transport Parveen Bala.

Ms Kamachi said she moved to the Ba­rara flats in 1976 after her marriage and to witness a worthy project that would ben­efit her family was a blessing.

“My husband passed away and could not see this day, but we are very happy,” Ms Kamachi said.

“The project will bring about changes in our family’s lives especially with our agri­culture farming, our children’s education and our future”.

Mr Bala said the project is part of the Bainimarama Government’s aim of “Leaving no Fijian behind”.

“Today, we are experiencing the vision of this Government to transform Fiji and build a modern society for people,” he said.

“This is part of the Government’s vision to transform Fiji, but to make that reality; we need to build a modern and resilient infrastructure that is strong enough to support our future development”.
