"We invite them here to learn basic skills and we have even paid for them to do courses at TPAF because thatís what they said they wanted to do. But after that they just move back on the streets and amongst them are some who are renting out their houses."
Caucau quotes
"The young people will think that begging is okay and if you are finding difficulties you can just go on the streets and beg."
Caucau
"A key strategy towards restoring stability is developing targeted approaches to poverty reduction across different sectors coupled with the specific social provisions for the poor and the most vulnerable groups in society."




Caucau Adi Asenaca quotes
"A priest warned me that we must keep a careful and guarded watch over fellow Indo-Fijians because they are like weeds. They tend to push to grab and take over the land and the nation. (Era dau sugusugu vanua). I really appreciated the meaning of the words "sugusugu vanua" because this is what we, the indigenous people (i.e. taukei) have proven and believe is the design of the foreigners (vulagi)".
Caucau Adi Asenaca
"All over the world people are dying of poverty but that is not the case here in Fiji because the beauty about Fiji is that people are always ready to help those in need."
Adi Asenaca Caucau quotes
"There are only a certain number of people who are begging. These are the same people and the assumption that begging is increasing is in fact wrong because it is the same people who keep moving about."
Adi Asenaca Caucau
"I am simply stating a fact and it was not meant to be racist" - reaction to subsequent calls for an apology.
Caucau Adi Asenaca quotes
"Some of them pretend to be disabled or lie that they are orphans just to be able to get sympathy and money. So for the beggars it should not be an issue any more, they should be taken off the streets."
