The voices of the youth shall not go unheard.
These were the sentiments of the Minister for Youth and Sports, Parveen Kumar Bala at the Youth Farm Initiative Programme at Drawa village in Macuata yesterday.
Minister Bala said while he was there to hand over the grant assistance, he wanted to also make a personal effort to consult face-to-face with the youth and their elders.
A total of 16 youth from Belego Hill riders Youth Club received the grant assistance which consisted of vegetable seedlings, digging spades, forks, cane knives, watering cans and greenhouse materials.
Youth officers designated to various districts around the Northern Division are also available to offer assistance and guidance to the respective youth groups.
Minister Bala also highlighted the Capital Project programme whereby youth groups can access a new grant to assist them with capital projects.
