Youths and advisors of Nasolo Youth Club were reminded of Government’s inclusive stance in regards to youth development and development agenda across all Government departments and ministries.

This was reiterated by the Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou while holding informal discussions with youths and villagers of Nasolo in the district of Nadi in Bua, Vanua Levu last week.

“I am pleased to hear of all that the youths of Nasolo have accomplished so far and even though the Ministry has failed to receive any reports from the youth club, it is satisfying to know that you are active in your community,” Mr Tuitubou said.

While being informed of the youth club’s inclusive approach towards the management and running of their youth group by having a special need youth hold the office of treasurer, Mr Tuitubou praised them for their belief and trust in their disabled companion.

“The Fijian Government has throughout the years promoted an inclusive approach towards all forms of development and the Ministry has taken its cue from there by incorporating faith based and all ethnic youth clubs in our mandate.

“It is endearing to hear that your youth club actively engages the services of disabled youths in your activities instead of shunning them and I am very happy to learn of this,” Mr Tuitubou said.

He encouraged them to continue to realise their potential in order to live prosperous lives.
Principal youth officer North Taniela Tuinaceva said there was a need for Government’s programmes to be felt by all levels of society.

“We want our services and programmes to have a positive effect on communities but not only at youth club level, it should trickle down to your individual families as well as to all levels of your community,” Mr Tuinaceva said.
Nasolo youth club president Lepani Rabuli acknowledged the presence of the visiting delegation and stressed that the youth club would try to collaborate more closely with the Ministry.

“We usually are out of touch with the ministry but with this visit by the Minister and his team, we know that we are being cared for by the Government and we will try to keep the ministry updated on our activities which has been made simpler too with the appointment of the youth administrator for Bua,” Mr Rabuli said.
