THE Ministry of Youth and Sports is working on five rural projects under its youth development program this year.

Minister Commander Viliame Naupoto said the projects included three playing fields and two multi-purpose courts on Viti Levu.

Commander Naupoto said they had completed geo-technical surveys on the proposed projects.

"We have completed all the surveys this year at the proposed field site in the interior part of Nadarivatu, Ba, Navosa Central College and Corpus Christi," he said.

"Apart from just focusing on rugby and soccer, we also build courts of sporting activities such as basketball and volleyball.

"We have continued to receive overwhelming requests from youth groups and villages on such assistance.

"The government this year allocated $200,000 for youth development and these funds are being used to assist people with such projects."

Cdr Naupoto said when people requested the ministry for such assistance, they expected the consent of the landowners to be attached with the request letter.

"We expect to receive the consent and other relevant documents from landowners with the letters. The completion of the projects might be taking time as we want to ensure they are done correctly.

"We want to ensure that we build the right and full- sized fields and courts that will be enjoyed and treasured by the users."
