TWENTY-six-year-old Pauliasi Waqanivalu is doing all he can to get youth members from his small community of Delainavesi to come together to help raise awareness of the commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) in the country.
Mr Waqanivalu said as a member of the Delainavesi youth, he encouraged all the men in the group to become better people by acknowledging their role in the battle against CSEC and hoped more communities around the country did the same.
"This is my first time to be part of something like this and it's really challenging at the moment, but it's really good," Mr Waqanivalu said in an interview.
"I've been part of the youth of Delainavesi for a while, but I only recently began to discuss things like CSEC."
He said this was the first time for Delainavesi to be involved in monitoring CSEC within its community although they had not recorded any suspected cases of it.
"So what we try and do is to raise awareness with our youth group so we meet every Monday and every Sunday evening after church and discuss anything new."
