MINISTRY COMMITTED TO TRAINING YOUTH: SANIA

The Ministry of Youth and Sports has challenged graduate trainees at the Nasau Youth Training Centre in Sigatoka to develop their potential.

At the closing of the Seeds of Success training facilitated by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the youth were reminded of Government?s commitment to work with young Fijians. The Ministry?s permanent Secretary Mr Josefa Sania formally closed the training for the 35 new trainees and said, ?I urge you all to make the most of Government?s investment on you this year.?

?The Ministry has selected you from the many applicants and it hopes each of you will make the most of this opportunity?, Mr Sania said.

The training in Nasau is provided to the young people selected from the 14 provinces in Fiji without any financial costs borne by the trainees. Mr Sania said that ?Government will continue to invest in the empowerment of young people especially those in the rural areas.?

?We will continue to identify the means and dispense the necessary tools to enable our youth populace to become stable resourceful citizens of this nation,? added Mr Sania.

Volau Cakacaka, 20, of Viro village in Ovalau said; ?I am grateful for this opportunity and am looking forward to 10 further months of training here at Nasau.?

?As a student with Special Needs, I am ready for the challenges and the Seeds of Success (SOS) training held this week has really prepared us well for the academic year and especially when we return home,? said Volau.

?Through the SOS I have learned to stay positive always that I can be successful despite the challenges of life,? said Volau.

Mr Sania also told the trainees that; ?the Seeds of Success training should help steer you to do right, use your time wisely, stay positive, make wise decisions and stay focus on your goals.?

?May I reaffirm that the things you have learnt this week are vital values that you should treasure in order to achieve success,? added the permanent secretary.
