Australia and the European Union collaborate with Habitat for Humanity to give 40 families new homes
Forty families, whose homes were completely destroyed during TC Winston, will benefit from a partnership between Australia and the European Union via a project implemented by the Habitat For Humanity Fiji (HFH Fiji) and the Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC).
The project called 'Delivery of Vocational Training in Fiji' is developing a cadre of skilled and experienced carpenters/builders with Australian certification qualification. Within this project, course facilitators have designed an innovative training course that helps address some of the shelter needs in TC Winston- affected areas.
Apart from the provision of 40 new core shelters, this partnership aims to develop the construction skills of 33 displaced workers from the Penang Sugar mill due to the impact of TC Winston, including family members of local sugarcane farmers.
