A rugby sevens tournament has been organised to help unemployed youths in the Nasinu area.
Tournament organiser Apolosi Qata said the main idea behind the tournament was to help youths through sports, which might be the first step in their securing a better future for themselves.
Qata said the two-day tournament would be held on September 27-28.
"We are working with Nasinu Town Council and Nasinu police in organising this event which we believe is very important in helping youth development in the Nasinu area," Qata said. "We have a lot of things lined up for our youths but we will just start with the sevens tournament.
"We believe by organising this sevens tournament is one area where we can help combat crime in the area."
Qata said by working with the Nasinu police they would be able to provide a healthy and reproductive relationship with the youths of Nasinu.
"We want to start with our youths as we try and get them involved in sports and find a career path for them.
"We will later organise programs for arts, drug awareness, road safety, crime awareness, business and trade skills and also farming," Qata said.
The tournament will be at the Police Ready Action Unit (formerly Police Mobile) grounds in Nasinu.
