Nadi Youths Give Back To Community
Kakala Warrior Youth Club members engages in community work at Savunawai in Nadi.

The multiracial and multi-religious youth group of Savunawai Housing in Nadi is working together to give back to their community.

After registering under the Ministry of Youth and Sports two weeks ago as Kakala Warrior Youth Club, these young people started involving themselves in cleaning up around the neighbourhood and fixing potholes on their streets.

President Pranesh Kumar said he was amazed at how the young people were working in unity.

“After this youth club was formed weeks ago, I have seen the involvement of youths from all sorts of backgrounds come together and engage in community work.

“We involve ourselves in going to our elderly citizen’s homes and cleaning up their compound. There were also potholes on our streets that we had fixed.”

He said at night these young men and women were stationed in various checkpoints in their areas and helped in community policing.

“Some of them were part of the K9 Pawsitive Dog training in which they assist Police in patrolling during curfew hours.”

He said there have been less criminal activities in their area because of the involvement of young people in the community and the support they received from their elders.

Furthermore Mr Kumar said they also organised grass cutting services and hoped to lease a vacant compound to plant vegetables and promote healthy living.

“Whatever money we receive from the people that we serve goes to our youth club. We also promote healthy living and we are hoping to hire a vacant compound to plant vegetables and root crops,” he added.
