THE Fiji Corrections Services for the first-time launched the Christmas Vakaviti Art Exhibition at the Tagimoucia Art Gallery in Walu Bay today.

Officiating at the launch, His Excellency, the President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konusi Konrote commended the Fiji Corrections Services for introducing rehabilitation programs like the Yellow Ribbon to assist inmates with opportunities that will equip them intellectually and financially for the future.

The program provides rehabilitative opportunities for inmates to learn more on farming techniques, industrial skills and artistic skills that will assist them when they are released from any correction facility.

For the first time a fashion show was also organised to showcase the talent of women inmates in the areas of fashion designing.
