Three older women who were part of the Savusavu Wom­ens two-day Expo are call­ing on youths to make use of their skills and talents.

Luisa Tade, 60, Ena Mila, 72 and Enisei Tunawai, 62 who are part of the “Grandmothers Club” in Sa­vusavu made this call.

“This is our life and we would encourage more youths to join us,” Ms Tade said.

Ms Tade said the ‘Grandmothers Club’ engages in creating new de­signs for their products and sale.

“We have a meeting every Tues­day and that is when we contribute ideas,” she said.

She said there had been disap­pointment for the three when a few members had left their club earlier last month, but it has made them more determined to take on the challenge and take their creative arts group forward.

She said that the team had shown progress over the days as well.

“The number of art and craft ma­terials we have been able to design has also increased.

“We learnt this work from our parents and now the responsibility is on us to pass it to the next gen­eration,” she said.

She also said that the club had won a number of awards in previ­ous years and they were happy to teach young people.

The expo ended yesterday.
