Government is willing to assist in the re-opening of the training centre on Koro Island for youths there.

Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou in his recent trip to Koro received a request for Government assistance on the damaged training centre.

“Apparently the training centre belonged to the Methodist Church and used to be administered under the National Youth Services before the National Employment Centre was formed,” Mr Tuitubou said.

“It has been idle for a while, and the Koro Development Committee has made a commitment to renovate and reopen the centre.

Mr Tuitubou said the ministry was ready to complement the efforts by the community and other stakeholders in Koro to revive the centre.

“It is encouraging to hear your passion towards reviving the training centre and for youth development work,” he said.

Mr Tuitubou encouraged the youth and elders in Koro to pursue their plans and ensure it was achieved for the betterment of their island.

The chairperson of the Koro Development Committee, Joji Qaranivalu said: “The centre was badly damaged by Tropical Cyclone Winston and we are seriously contemplating re-opening the centre for our youths soon.”
