The youths of United Samabula North Youth Club are actively investing into the development of their suburb, Samabula.

Around 50 youths who are members of the club had recently constructed a new pathway for the residents of Bureta Street.

Their next project will be to fundraise for a community hall.

Youth Club secretary, Malakai Gucake said this would be done by holding a walk-a-thon.

“We are having a walk-a-thon on May 27 and we aim to finance our current projects that are in line for the year.

“We also want the efforts of our youths to be recognised,” Mr Gucake said.

Mr Gucake said while the fundraising for the new community hall project would take time, plans were in place to support the community further.

In addition, the group has also sought assistance from the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

Ministry senior principal officer – Central Iowane Soko handed over set of equipment to the club this week.

They included two brush cutters and wheelbarrows.

This would assist them in the overall cleanliness and beautification project of the area.

Mr Gucake added that the club continued to carry outmonthly cleanup campaign – “Fight the bite” -in a bid to eradicate mosquito breeding places to combat dengue.

The club is also looking at engaging with the Police to activate its community crime watch programme.
