While leading a delegation from his ministry to the island of #Rotuma on Saturday, the Minister for Youth and Sports Parveen Kumar said the sole reason for this exercise is to have a vibrant youth sector in the near future that contributes to the economy, reduces poverty and equalises living standards.
Minister Kumar closed two empowerment training sessions – one focused on Health and Wellbeing while the other focused on Financial Literacy.
He also handed over assistance under the Youth Farm Initiative Program to six youth clubs; particularly the Losa Youth Club, Itumuta Youth Club, Hapmafau Youth Club, Motusa Youth Club, Hapmak Youth Club and Oinafa Youth Club.
“This youth farm initiative program provides grants to youth clubs to cultivate the land and grow crops,” Minister Kumar said.
A total of 100 youth members of Rotuma benefitted from this farming assistance.
