MAKING a difference in the community, a group of rural workers have joined the ATH Fiji Foundation's 'World of Difference' program working with civil societies to help improve the livelihoods of people.

In a workshop held in Labasa yesterday, the eight community workers would work with charitable organisations conducting programmes in the north aimed at improving livelihoods in villages and settlements.

ATH Fiji Foundation executive Ambalika Kutty said the program was aimed at changing people's attitude towards their daily lifestyle.

"It involves educational programmes whereby charitable organisations work with our candidates on programmes they have drawn up and is basically aimed at instilling self help attitudes within people in community.

"We have educational programmes targeted at sending children to school, nursery programs that involves local neighbourhoods where they plant their own backyard vegetable farms," Mrs Kutty said. The participants included community workers from Rabi island and villages in Cakaudrove and Macuata.

The World of Difference program has handed out $360,000 with $180,000 to the north, $120,000 to the west and $160,000 to Central Eastern division.

One of the programmes in the 'World of Difference', is the construction of flush toilets in villages in which a youth is involved.
