Thirty-five youths of Namara in Tailevu completed a four-day training on Small Engine Repairs to help them improve their livelihood.

The training, through the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs, was conducted by staff of the Centre for Appropriate Technology and Development (CATD) in Nadave.

It was held at Nakalawaca Village. Namara has Nakorolevu, Tubalevu, Naikawaga, Naisausau and Matamaivere villages.

The Ministry’s media liaison officer, Alipate Natoba, said the training was requested by the Tailevu Provincial Council.

Roko Tui Tailevu, Semisi Saukawa said the training taught participants to repair small engines like outboard motors, brushcutters and generators in their villages and those from nearby places.

He said participants could move on to become technicians and motor mechanics.

He said village elders needed to support young people by requesting for training provided by the ministry.
