AROUND 20 beauty therapists in Labasa were part of a Youth Ministry-organised workshop aimed at empowering youths to generate income from the art.

Workshop participant and practising beauty therapist Kelepi Petiri described the workshop as useful and informative.

Mr Petiri said he was an amateur in the field of beauty therapy and that the workshop taught him a lot.

"I am trying to get everything I can in this one-week workshop. It will help me when I go back to work," he said.

Another participant Atileshni Devi said the workshop helped her make up her mind to join a salon and start her own salon soon.

Ms Devi said she had always wished to delve into the area of beauty therapy.

"I am a kindergarten schoolteacher and am looking forward to starting my own salon in the near future," she said.
