The Minister for Children Rosy Akbar commends the work of the Education of Needy Children or FENCE Fiji.
In her speech at the launch of the Golden Coin Foundation at the Fiji Museum last night, Akbar says parents play an enormous role in our society.
She said FENCE Fiji has improved the circumstances of many children in the country.
“In fact what FENCE Fiji is doing is complimenting my Ministry’s work and of course the government’s work in ensuring that we create a knowledge base society and that starts with sending our children to school.”
Akbar said some parents do not do all they can to ensure their children are put through school but rather depend on assistance from the government through the Ministry of Social Welfare.
She reiterated that parents need to ensure that their children are looked after and not neglected.
