Ra-Marama Culture and Information Hub

"We the women of Cakaudrove are really looking forward to having this as a networking centre, to bring in our craft, talk about our safety as women. This is where we will all meet as women. It's been a long journey for us, we encountered many difficulties...and with AWF it’s like our dreams have come true” —Adi Kavu Fong, SVTC

This time last year the Great Hall at the Ra-Marama Culture and Information Hub in Savusavu, Fiji was completed. It has been an exciting year for the rural women of Cakaudrove—Soqosoqo Vakamarama i Taukei ni Cakaudrove (SVTC), with them moving in and having this special place of their own.

The Great Hall provides a space for women to meet and sell craft, share stories, educate and learn. A place where they can come together and where they can have a voice.

Architects Without Frontiers are looking forward to continuing working with the SVTC and Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in 2019 to progress Phase 2 of this project.
