Will you marry me on the REACH bus?

Savaira and Amani in their home village in Namosi
Living in a rural area, preoccupied with the hardships of making ends meet, Savaira & Amani couldn’t find the time to seek public services, including marriage
the REACH bus — a ‘mobile office,’ custom designed and equipped to provide social services for the general public, who cannot otherwise easily access it
Following the marriage, Savira said: “I now feel that I fully belong and have a stronger commitment to the vanua (land)”
