Youths told to register

WESTERN Division youths will not have access to government funding initiatives or assistance unless they register with the Youth Ministry, says senior West youth officer Valami Naloga.

Mr Valami said there were many schemes from within the government machinery and NGOs to help youths train, set-up or even have access to capital funding.

"The first step, however, is for them to form their youth groups formally and register with us," he said.

Mr Valami said there were opportunities to help youths in farming, procure boats for commercial fishing purposes and participate in basic skills training.

"We have just returned from Waya Island in the Yasawas where we conducted a week-long training workshop on small engine repairs and art and craft because of the small craft operations in the islands and also the tourism industry presence," he said.

Lautoka youth Ratu Viliame Naulivou said young people must wake up, organise and get involved in community projects before registering as a group.
