The District of Naqarawai in the province of Namosi were happy and thanked the Government for the one week Empowerment Training Programme which was organised by the Ministry of Youths and Sports. It began on Monday, last week.

Naqarawai Village Youth President, Atonio Nemani, said their district youth had not been active for the past years.

“In the past years, I have been trying to bring all our youths together but nothing happened.”

“This empowerment training programme has enlightened us to bring the youths together.

“We learnt a lot of things from this training, and ways to set up business in order to gain money.”

The training, he said was based on 12 seeds of success, these include; knowing who you are, having a good character, knowing your purpose, to name a few.

“We are requesting if the ministry could bring more training like this to us in the future,” Mr Nemani said.

There were 45 youths and  parents who received their certificate of participation including one living with disability.

MINISTER

“Technology should not control you, you should control technology.”

These were the words of the Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou while closing the one week Namosi Empowerment Training Programme, at Naqarawai Village in Namosi .

Speaking to the youths and villagers present, he said their life tomorrow depends on what they did today.

Mr Tuitubou encouraged youths to venture into any form of business of their choice.

But they always had to ensure that any venture they engaged in was based on demand for their products or services from their community or larger group of potential consumers.

The programme, he said, aimed to enlighten and strengthen youths to enable them to actively participate in development activities.

He said the Government emphasised that development was to reach all parts of Fiji.

He said that the Government’s help and assistance had come straight to their doorsteps.

Youths needed to be hardworking for the betterment of their future.

He urged youths to follow the law. He said today many youths are breaking the law and were taken to task.

Mr Tuitubou thanked the Ministry of Health, Fiji Revenue and Customer Service, Ministry of Agriculture, and other Government departments who were part of the one week training.

HELPING ALL

A man living with disability, Ilimo Sugumai, 30, was among the 45 youths who received their certificates yesterday.

Mr Tuitubou said the ministry’s business plan also targeted assistance for disadvantaged young people.

He said the Government is providing services to everyone and also to disadvantaged people.
