OSEA Koli's age has not stopped him from seeking more knowledge to better his livelihood and those of his people.

The Fiji Times met the 59-year-old Wainiika native at a recent youth empowerment workshop in the village of Navetau in Cakaudrove.

Mr Koli said people joked about his participation in the youth workshop, which was meant to help people half his age find ways to support themselves.

"I always tell people that we will never stop learning, the learning process will end with us in our graves," he said.

"I am so proud of being part of this workshop and look forward to graduating with my friends.

"The Ministry of Youth must be thanked for thinking of young men out here in rural areas and opening up doors of possibilities for them."

Mr Koli said the empowerment would benefit the participants a lot because it also included financial literacy training.

"This is a training that is needed in our iTaukei society because we need to learn how to manage our time and resources wisely."
