Youth issues

Shayal Devi
Friday, April 18, 2014

TEENAGE pregnancy, peer pressure and poverty are some of the issues youths of Nawaka in Nadi will discuss at their inaugural Easter youth camp this weekend.

Spiritual adviser Reverend Ilaitia Ciri said the camp's main purpose was to develop their youths socially, mentally and spiritually.

"We will have speakers from the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre, the Fiji Police Force and the Health Ministry who will talk on various issues concerning youths of Fiji today," Mr Ciri said.

"It is important they understand what life is, therefore, this camp will be of great benefit to all of them."

Mr Ciri said a guest speaker from the Davuilevu Theological College would talk on how they could develop their spiritual lives.

About 700 youths are expected to be part of the four-day camp.
