More than 40 participants par­ticipated in a week long baking training organised by the Min­istry of Youth and Sports at Namuana Village in Kadavu recently.

The Minister for Youth and Sports, Laisenia Tuitubou, encouraged youths to use the techniques and the skills ac­quired during the training to create and sustain their livelihoods.

Mr Tuitubou said that the Ministry’s non-formal education model was produc­ing the desired results.

“We see a lot of youths being empow­ered, upskilled and employed through our non-formal education model,” he said.

“This is also evident in the rural and maritime areas where youths can access such training and further pursue their education careers or personal aspira­tions.”

One of the youth participants, Molia Volavola, said she wishes to educate oth­er young ladies from her village on the skills she acquired during the training.

“The training really helped develop my baking knowledge and skills,” Ms Vola­vola said.

“I learned how to bake when I was small but this training showed me the basics and safety hygiene of baking.

“I thank the Ministry for organising this training and now I can also use the knowledge gained to empower other young ladies in my village.”
