Government remains committed towards empowering youths around the country in assisting them towards achieving their goals says the Minister for Youth and Sports Hon. Laisenia Tuitubou.
He made the comments as he handed over 100 chairs worth $3,000 to the Legalega Youth Club of Nadi which would assist them in hiring the chair out for more revenue for the club.
“The handing over of these 100 steel chairs comes in the wake of the ministry’s follow up of requests by the youth club and this handing over is symbolic of the ministry’s efforts at empowering youths,” he said.
“With this equipment, I challenge you, the Legalega Youth Club to increase your income generation through your projects and continue to work with us for your benefit while at the same time uplift your community as you stride towards the future.”
“The circumstances surrounding your youth club and the struggles you faced are in some ways similar to the challenges faced by youth clubs all around the country but in the face of it all, you have succeeded in your projects – this is the very reason why I have chosen to speak of your accomplishments to the other youth clubs,” Hon. Tuitubou said.
“Legalega Youth Club in my opinion is a beacon of hope not only for youths in the Western Division but Fiji as a whole. Therefore as you receive this assistance given to you by the Ministry this evening, remember that you have my full support and that of the ministry.”
Hon. Tuitubou said he hoped the timely boost would assist the club in its small micro enterprise project.
Legalega Youth Club is one of the most successful youth clubs in the country, having business dealing throughout the western division for weddings, birthdays and other events through its business arm in catering and décor.
