TEN youths from the Central and Western divisions are attending a week-long workshop on advocacy training to enhance their practical skills in this area.

Aspects of the training include the creation of advocacy merchandise, the management of Facebook pages and other social media tools as well as skills on fostering their network and communication.

"The objective of the training is to provide the participants with an opportunity to enhance their existing knowledge on advocacy and boost their confidence to carry out advocacy campaigns in their respective communities or with the youth groups they are involved in," said Alzima Bano-Mow, the youth co-ordinator for the Citizens Constitutional Forum.

"The advocacy issues faced by the participants have been broken down to fitness, including mental health, spiritual and physical well-being while some of them are targeting sexual reproductive and health rights and environmental sustainability".

Among the participant was 21-year-old Mozeema, who said the workshop had greatly boosted her confidence.

"It's been quite interesting to learn a lot about advocacy and how it is done," she said.

The Nawaka, Nadi, resident is a member of a Suva-based youth advocacy group.

The training at the Hexagon Hotel in Nadi is organised by CCF and funded by the EU and Conciliation Resources.
