Youths told to learn trade

THERE has been an all round poor involvement or participation of Nadroga Navosa youths at vocational and business training centers around the country.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki made this statement at the Nadroga Navosa Provincial Council meeting last week.

"This is what I found out during the visit to the Nadave Youth Training Center in Tailevu and also the Nasau Center which is right here under your noses in Nadroga," Cmdr Cawaki said.

"Nadave is full of youths from all over Fiji with only three from your province, the same is seen at Nasau. We must encourage our youths to learn trades because not all in Nadroga Navosa can play rugby and get contracts."
