YOUTHS of Ba Province are gearing up for their first carnival next month with the hope that funds raised will sustain the operations of its provincial youth council, among other goals.

Ba Provincial Youth Council co-ordinator Samisoni Vugakoto said they received annual financial contributions from the province's 21 districts to assist with operational costs.

He said the concept of the carnival was floated as a means of helping sustain themselves and gathering youths from all over the country.

"We have been getting positive feedback from youths as well as support and encouragement from our provincial council and chiefs," he said.

"This carnival will also be a good networking opportunity for our young men and women to share ideas on plans they want for the province."

The carnival aims to address social issues by including sessions with the National Employment Centre and the Reproductive Family Health Association Fiji.

Traditional iTaukei games and an art and craft show will feature at the four-day carnival at Nadi's Koroivolu and Prince Charles parks from September 10-13.
