Telecom Vanuatu Limited (TVL) has signed a three-year agreement with Fest’Napuan Association to provide 1 million vatu worth of sponsorship support to the event for the next three years.
The Chief Executive Officer of TVL, Mr Divik Deo, said at the time of the signing of the agreement, "This was an unprecedented show of commitment from TVL who has had a long history of association with Fest’Napuan dating back some twenty years and it was appropriate that TVL solidified this association even further.
“It gives us immense pleasure to be the platinum sponsors of an event which addresses contemporary issues through the expression of art and this year’s special theme “Protektem Envaeronmen Blong Yumi” is most appropriate”.
Earlier, in June, TVL sponsored the Street Dance Battle during which it donated garbage bins to the Port Vila Municipal Council in its bid to protect the environment from litter.
"But this year’s theme goes beyond littering to highlight real issues of environment conservation, sustainable environmental management and traditional uses of the environment, especially when the Pacific, and indeed the whole world, is becoming more susceptible to natural disasters,” said CEO Deo.
“Cyclone Pam is a stark reminder of the impact on the environment from climate change.”
In excess of twenty thousand people are expected are expected to attend the three-day event in October which will be held at the Saralana Park- the home of Fest’Napuan.
“TVL invites everyone to come and enjoy the fun filled fiesta,” said Deo.
