Guest Speaker was club member Rob Edwards on his ‘Building Resilient Women in Fiji’ Project. Rob is actually busy with his main project which is putting solar in remote villages in Fiji but then an opportunity presented itself. He is now mentoring a group of Fijian women led by Kathy to set up this resilience project. The women are involved in farming, small business & health initiatives.
