26-year old Ratu Vula Radovu and other recipient Atu Rasea of Namadai in Suva

26-year old Ratu Vula Radovu is the third recipient of Digicel Fiji's All In for Fiji initiative which will see a total of $50,000 handed out for various community projects in the country.

Radovu who resides in Biliwai Settlement in Wailoku has asked if a footpath can be constructed on their 200 metres track which is always muddy because it is next to the river.

He says about 100 people live in this settlement with around 50 students and they walk the same track everyday to school.

Radovu thanked Digicel for the opportunity to construct a footpath which the community has been longing for years.

The other recipient Atu Rasea of Namadai in Suva had asked for the renovation of their community hall as it was deteriorating.

Rasea says there are also no women and men's toilets at the hall. Digicel Fiji CEO Farid Mohammed says the funding they are providing will help individuals or groups to implement projects to uplift local communities.

Digicel has extended the due date to 30th October and people can submit their ideas they might have for their community project on their webpage
