For Laota Gonemeke, 42, bringing her three children to the Careers Expo organised by the volunteers of the Lami Catholic Parish. The organisers hope to make an annual event.

It was an opportunity for her two sons to get into vocational training programme.

Revoni Batiratu, 16, and Leone Gonemeke, 15, dropped out of John Wesley High School earlier this year, because of poor academic performance.

“We want to become mechanics and so we want to take up courses in this area,” said Revoni.

Their mother preferred that her sons would take up vocational training or enrol in a Matua programme.

Lily Koroi, a Year Eight student of Waiqanake District School was interested on the fire safety station at the expo.

“I learned not to play with matches and all the fire safety rules,” said Lily.

Event organiser, Nemani Drovo said: “High unemployment rate in the Lami corridor was one of the reason why the career expo was held.”

Schools located in or near the area including unemployed youths were invited to attend the expo.
