The tour provided a perfect opportunity to engage in ‘Talanoa’ sessions with the village youth clubs

The Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports, Iliesa Delana, visited seven villages, reaching out to over 20 village youth clubs while touring the Nadroga/Navosa Province from March 26th – 29th March, 2018.

The objective of the visit was to create awareness on the youth club registration process and other programmes of the ministry.

Assistant Minister Delana said the visit was timely to gauge the difficulties faced by village youth clubs in accessing information on the provisions and support provided by respective Government Ministries.

“The tour provided a perfect opportunity to engage in ‘Talanoa’ sessions with the village youth clubs in the Nadroga/Navosa province,” the Assistant Minister said.

“It gives us the opportunity to inform community members, specifically youth clubs, about the Ministry’s programs, types of assistance we provide and also on the criteria of youth club registration process.

“It was found that 78 per cent of youth clubs are engaged in agricultural farming.

“These types of data are very crucial for the ministry as it provides us with information on the types of assistance these youth clubs may need,” Assistant Minister Delana said.
