Women groups of the Langafonua ‘a Fafine Tonga Association are working together to meet basic needs towards renovation of the Langafonua Handicraft Centre which was established by her late Majesty – Queen Salote Tupou 3 in 1953.
This morning, the women held a fund-raising program aiming to achieve this.
Chief Coordinator of Langafonua ‘a Fafine Tonga – ‘Uheina Kalaniuvalu says, the program aims to prove that women in Tonga can earn a living for their own families through their handicrafts.
Kalaniuvalu also encouraged women in Tonga that despite the new move made by the government to tax goods, they can still earn a good source of income for themselves and their families, community and also for the development of the country.
The Langafonua Handicraft Centre of the Langafonua ‘a Fafine Tonga are looking into ways to establish a Museum to preserve the ancient handicrafts and cultural artefacts.
