Youths of the Christian Mission Fellowship church packed the DeVos On The Park conference room yesterday for World Harvest Centre – Youth Ablaze Leaders workshop.
With the theme ‘Voice of Young People within the Winds of Change’ the workshop provided an opportunity for the youths to be educated on the current Constitution submission process.
The fifty youth participants were told to make handwritten submissions for compilation of their overall submission to the Constitution Commission.
Youth Pastor Kolinio Boila said more than 100 youths from around the country had registered for the one-day workshop.
“The workshop will provide a platform for the youths to develop their leadership skills and strengthen their spiritual development,” Pastor Boila said.
“It will also provide an opportunity for the youths to make their submission to the Constitution Commission on issues like unemployment, education system, health and socio economic related issues concerning the development of youths in Fiji.
“The workshop will empower the youths to return home with enhanced leadership skills, file a collective submission to the Constitution Commission and take back the lessons and skills learned and become the agents of change in their own communities.”
Guest speaker, Capacities for Peace and Development (CPAD) representative Nanise Saune said CPAD aimed to build a community of peace practitioners in the Pacific.
“CPAD is supporting national peace-building efforts in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Papua New Guinea, including Bougainville,” Ms Saune said.
“In Fiji, CPAD has been supporting efforts towards the constitution development process.
“CPAD has been supporting nationwide efforts through our small grants funding to generate interest and understanding of why the constitution is important to the everyday lives of all Fijians and to provide inclusive and participatory spaces for people to talk about the constitution.”
She said the workshop would provide an opportunity for youth participants to make their views known.
