RESPONDING to requests for a youth initiative to be set up in Nadi, the Rotaract Club of Suva conducted training for 15 members of the newly-established Rotaract Club of Nadi New Horizons on Saturday.

Rotaract Suva president Kristyn Lobendhan said the historical event was a sign that young people wanted to play an active role in contributing positively to society.

"We have been working tirelessly to set up a new club in Nadi for young professionals wanting to do something for their community," the 29-year-old said.

"This would not have been successful without the encouragement of the many Rotarians in Fiji who saw the need to have more youth-based rotary initiatives in the country."

Ms Lobendahn explained Rotaract was the youth arm of the Rotary Club and members were between 18 and 30 years of age.
