SPTO joined UNDP Pacific in their International Women’s Day special event for the women of Galoa village held at the UNDP office in Suva today.
The women had attended a UNDP sponsored repurposing plastics workshop that was convened by SPTO. Today the women spoke about their experiences and how the training has helped them to learn more plastic pollution and how it harms their marine environment. This is important for them as they are members of the clan that is the traditional owner of fishing grounds that is also Fiji’s first shark marine reserve. The women also made a handsome profit selling some of the jewelry they brought to display at the event.
