The Fiji Corrections Service takes this time to thank the following sponsors whose funding and support in kind enables us to host our two biggest events of the year the EMPLOYMENT EXPO and
the YELLOW RIBBON WALK.
Acting Commissioner of Corrections Salote Panapasa said it was always the same companies who have supported them in the past 5-years since the Walk started growing to the size it is today.
“We are always grateful for the corporates who whole heartedly give every year so that we can host these two events.
“The Yellow Ribbon Campaign has grown from 2008 to date with over 3000 participants! I acknowledge the father of the Yellow Ribbon Hon Ioane Naivalurua who was present along with Hon Vasu, both former Commissioners of Corrections, with Hon AG Siromi Turaga and Assistant Minister for Defence, Hon Rakuita Vakalalabure and Lynda Tabuya, Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation .
The theme this year is the Walk of Empathy, giving our men and women who were in state care second chances. Thank you madam Commissioner Salote Panapasa for your kind hosting today
“These companies help us make this public statement every year and not only do they just support this very public event, they also go much further to give employment to Ex-Offenders.”
“So from the bottom of our hearts, from the men and women of the Fiji Corrections Service , including those under our care we thank you all sincerely for this humbling support.”
“We also would like to especially acknowledge the Fiji Media who continue to take the message of the Yellow Ribbon Program into every household every year – you are truly the reach of the nation.”
This year, the two events were supported by 29 companies.
