Women of Vanua Levu are gearing up for a showcase to be held in Savusavu in November.

This is to identify women with talents and skills to represent the Northern Division at the 2020 National Women’s Expo.

Tui Labasa, Ratu Jone Qomate while declaring his support for women said: “A famous saying goes, women hold up half the sky, therefore we’re here in support of our women in what they do.”

Ratu Jone was also present at the Macuata Women’s Day at the Katonivere ground in Labasa last week.

More than $5000 was raised at the event which would contribute to the funds that had been allocated for the Macuata Women’s Club’s long-term plans.

The Club is planning to build a coffee shop and a handicraft centre where they could sell and showcase their works.

Women’s Club president Melaia Qomate said the Macuata Women’s Day was an annual event to help strengthen the ties amongst women in the district of Macuata.

“We’re grateful to all the women who made this event possible, even though life is hard and busy,” Ms Qomate said..
