THIRTEEN participants of a week-long beauty therapy training in Labasa can now make use of their skills and knowledge to earn an income.

Last week, the participants were presented with beauty therapy certificates by the Youth and Sports Ministry acting principal youth officer Phillip Hereniko.

Aspiring therapist Kelepi Loga said he was fortunate to be part of the training.

"I have always wanted to be a beauty therapist and now with the knowledge and skills I have attained, I will be able to become a professional one," he said.

In his official address, Mr Hereniko said beauty care or therapy was a thriving business around the globe.

"The government of the day, through the ministry, is committed to ensuring our young people are given opportunities for training even if they have dropped out of school or have not completed tertiary education," he said.

"The ministry encourages and supports initiatives that are centred on developing youths in gaining either formal or informal employment, volunteer or attachment work, and the acquisition of entrepreneurial skills."

Facilitator TJ Loloma said the training was also an opportunity for the participants to build networks and good business relationships.
