THE Malaita provincial youth division has saluted and acknowledged the office of the Youth@Work in Auki for creating opportunities for youths in the rural areas in Malaita province.
This was said during the opening of the two weeks of the entrepreneurship component-two training for youths at Laugwata community on Wednesday this week by Youth desk officer for Malaita province Mr Timson Talui.
Talui said the Malaita provincial government has considered that all youth programmes initiated by Youth@Work office in Auki as very important for this young generation.
“Most of our youths were unemployed and such initiatives will definitely meet their needs for their future.
“Currently vocational schools have been introduced around malaita and the country at large but only few will have chances to go on with further skills trainings on those institutions depending on requirements and qualifications.
“But the office of the Youth@Work makes it so simple to organize and assist in activities that will also benefit our youths.
“Our provincial youth office will continue to work together with the Youth@Work office in Auki especially in its implementation and monitoring trainings and programs carried out by the office from the Youth@Work.”
Talui calls on the Malaita provincial government, provincial ward members and the responsible ministry to address and prioritise the issue regarding the welfare of youths.
