Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre Celebrates Another Successful Graduation

The Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre (MWVTC) continues to empower underprivileged women and young girls through skill-based training. Yesterday, the centre proudly graduated another cohort of enterprising women.

This batch consisted of 49 graduates, with 24 women earning the National Certificate in Aged Care and Community Care (Level 3), 17 women completing the National Certificate in Fashion, Manufacturing, and Design ( Level 2), and 8 women receiving Certificates in Cooking and Pastry.

The graduation ceremony was graced by the Higher Education Commission CEO, Dr. Rohit Kishore, who served as the Chief Guest. Dr. Kishore commended the significant role of religious organizations in advancing education in Fiji, highlighting their contributions to the country’s educational development.

“I acknowledge the Fiji Muslim League for supporting approximately 1,850 women who have graduated through MWVTC. This institution is not just for Muslim women but embraces women of various ages and ethnicities. You are unique, and I salute you for that,” said Dr. Kishore.

Dr. Kishore also addressed the evolving workforce landscape, noting the increasing influence of technology and shifting labor market demands. He emphasized the importance of continuous training to meet the changing needs of human resources.

 “Adapting to the fast-changing and dynamic economy and labor market requires a strong focus on Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET),” Dr Kishore further explained.

Dr. Kishore congratulated the graduates for their dedication and hard work. He also extended his gratitude to their supportive families and commended the institution for its vision and commitment to empowering underprivileged women.
