Production on a youth farm in Ovalau is set to increase, with the recent donation of farm house materials by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
Officiating at the handing over ceremony, Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports, Iliesa Delana, commended the members of the Tuvaka Youth Club in Rukuruku Village, Ovalau – for their passion and hard work.
The youth club, which has a membership of 20 young men and women, have turned to farming as a source of income and livelihood.
Farming yaqona and dalo, the youth have been unable to achieve their target, due to the distance of the farm from their village.
The materials which were funded by the Ministry – will boost the youths’ food security programme, and their income generating project.
The group is also committed to a 3 year development plan, for their village.
