Youth clubs need to think of more capital generating projects, says Minister for Youth and Sports Parveen Bala.

He said there was a capital grant to look out for early next month. This grant only focuses on youth clubs that have started or plan to start income generating projects.

“We are going to advertise in the month of November for youth clubs to apply for the grant.

“I’m urging youths and youth clubs to try to identify projects that will bring in revenue and from that revenue they can then expand their own startups,” said Mr Bala.

Last Friday, Mr Bala was at Nativa Village in Ra to handover farming tools to four youth groups.

These youth groups were Gakinawai, Koroniyau, Nalovo and Dawa Uprising Youth Club.

Clubs spokesperson, Varanisese Adimaitoga, said youths were trying their best to move out of their comfort zones to utilise their available resources.

Ms Adimaitoga said they were thankful to the ministry for the opportunity. It would help them employ more youths as well as generate income for their village and families.
