NADI District Youth Council president and Youth Plus Volunteer Award recipient 2012 Jioji Cakacaka is looking for a partner to establish a referral organisation for the people of Nadi.

Mr Cakacaka, a full-time Nadi volunteer, believes the referral organisation will help identify and address the needs of those who genuinely need assistance.

A government statement says the referral organisation will receive clients and direct them to institutions and organisations that can give assistance.

Mr Cakacaka benchmarked most of his voluntary duties against international commitments for government and civil societies such as MDGs, UN ratified charters and conventions. He is a recipient of the National Volunteer Award.

With the referral organisation to be established for the people of Nadi, Mr Cakacaka is also welcoming those who are interested in financially sponsoring this project.

Youth Ministry permanent secretary Joseva Sania commended Mr Cakacaka for his impressive contribution to society and especially to the youth of Nadi.
