Members of the Korovuli Youth Club at Korovuli Village in Macuata, Vanua Levu, are excited to begin their piggery project.

The 25-member club was handed $2500 last Thursday by Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation and the Northern Charity Alliance to build their piggery.

Members also went through training by Community Project Guide to learn how to run their business.

The Guide trains village-based youth groups and its members in operating income-generating projects in a community.

The Guide was developed by Tevita Tokalauvere who is the Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation World of Difference candidate.

He is attached with Northern Charity Alliance as the drug anonymous and income generation project officer.

“The training focused on conflict resolution, good governance, leadership and community development in project planning and report writing. These are key components to managing income generating projects,” Mr Tokalauvere said.

“It’s great to see groups like this at the grassroots level taking an initiative to develop their community with the money raked in from projects.”

Youth club president Paula Maisiri thanked the Foundation and the Alliance for their assistance.

“This funding was a kind gesture, especially with this piggery project,” Mr Maisiri said.

“During special occasions people look around for pigs, so this project will provide another market here in the North for meeting this demand.

“The money we will earn from this project will be used to help develop our community,” he said.
