FWRM Chairperson, Ms Daiana Buresovo said while they are sad to lose her, she knew Chetty would bring invaluable expertise to her new role.

BURESOVO:”Tara has played a pivotal role in further profiling FWRM at the regional and international levels as it relates to pioneering gender analysis. Tara is highly skilled at resource mobilisation which saw her and her team secure critical core international funding for FWRM for 2015 to 2019.”

Ms Chetty said her time at FWRM had been an incredibly enriching experience, where she had the opportunity to learn from and work with fellow activists and leaders here in Fiji, the Pacific and around the world.

CHETTY:“I am going to miss the exciting and innovative work I have had the privilege of being a part of at FWRM, particularly our work with young women and girls. But while I am leaving the organization, I’m not leaving the movement and will continue to be a part of our collective efforts for women’s rights in the region.”

Chetty is leaving FWRM to take up a role at a regional organisation promoting gender equality.
