Challenge for council

Litia Vulaidausiga

UNEMPLOYMENT continues to be one of the most glaring challenges for the Ba Youth Council and members hope the upcoming youth festival this year will help address this issue.

President Jone Baravilala Rasi said they were steadily progressing towards the Ba Provincial Youth Festival, scheduled for September 10-13 in Nadi, and had their hopes pinned on a permanent outcome that could heighten their economic opportunities.

"One big issue we face with our youths is unemployment," he said.

"We are working closely with the Ministry of Youth to combat this, but we are still trying.

"That is why we want to organise this event so we can set up a youth centre and an income-generating project to cater for the thousands of youths who are looking for jobs or want to be self-employed."
