The Visoto Young Women’s Club in Levuka received handicraft tools from the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
Minister responsible, Laisenia Tuitubou while handing over the tools yesterday urged the group to use the tools to sustain their livelihoods.
Tuitubou says the tools provided will assist the women’s club in processing and furnishing handicraft materials and is an opportunity to generate income to support their families.
He also highlighted the need for women empowerment in individual communities.
The young women will market their products at the Levuka market and then will look to expand their market in Suva and Nausori.
Visoto Young Women’s Club aims to secure a sustainable handicraft shop in Levuka town since there are no handicraft outlets on the island which also has been declared a World Heritage Site.
