Members of the Senau Youth Club were urged to make good use of the four acres of land given by Saunaka landown­ers for farming projects.

When handing over a Youth Farm Initiative Grant at Saunaka Village on Monday, the Minister for Youth and Sports Parveen Kumar Bala en­couraged youths to continue with their good work.

“To the recipients, may you con­tinue with the good work that you have been doing to propel youth de­velopment in your individual com­munities,” he said.

Club members all hail from Sau­naka Village. The club has 23 reg­istered members in total and they received farming materials worth about $2000.

The minister has urged them to make good use of the land and the grant they have received.

“I am told the youth club has been permitted approximately four acres of land and I thank our part­ners such as the village elders for supporting our young people here today,” Mr Bala said.

Government acknowleged

Meanwhile, club leader, Epeli Qoro, commended the Government for the farm initiative grant.

“We would like to show our sin­cere appreciation for the farm initiative grant which will greatly enhance the usage of land by our youth,” he said.

“We commend the Government of the day, especially the Ministry of Youth and Sports in empowering our youths of today in land usage and utilisation in the form of this aid being presented to us today.”
