Ra youths trained in carpentry

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 9:19PM FIFTY youths in the Ra province will become qualified carpenters upon the completion of their two-week training facilitated by Fiji's Ministry of Youth.

Western division project manager Valami Naloga said the carpentry training had gained popularity in the province of Ra because many villagers and youths had benefited from the courses organised by the ministry earlier this year.

The course aimed to support villagers rebuild their homes as part of the Government's Help for Homes initiative.

"The Ra province was one of the provinces worst hit by TC Winston and most are living in temporary shelters," Mr Naloga was quoted saying in a statement from the ministry.

"This training will help their rehabilitation efforts and help restore their livelihood."

The training targeted youths from 10 villages of Nakorotubu-i-vanua District and it also included youth participants from the districts of Nalawa and Saivou in Ra.
