Update: 5:28PM MINISTER for Youth Viliame Naupoto today handed over the voluntary youth organisation training grant assistance to the Suva Wheelbarrow Boys Association.
The grant included equipment such as reflective jackets and raincoats.
"Being eyes and ears for the police and help in arresting culprits is an honourable duty. You help to create Suva a peaceful city where people walk around feeling very safe," Mr Naupoto said.
Special Corporal Akimo Gu, an officer at the Suva Market Community post, said the boys' quality of life had improved since the formation of the association.
