MALAITA Provincial Youth Council (MPYC) has yet again donated seven 20kg bags of kava stalks this time to Orea youth group last week in Auki.
The support is part of Malaita Youthâs Economic Stimulus Package (ESP) assistance, especially for the kava sector and the assistance will only be received by one youth group in the 12 constituencies of the province.
President of MPYC, Philip Subu said MPYC is very happy to support the youth group as they are one among seven youth groups that have already received the MPYC ESP assistance.
He said Orea youth group is from the highlands of East Are Are and their determination to reach Auki to receive the support shows their seriousness towards the kava programme.
Subu acknowledged the youth group for their effort and urged them to make great use of the programme for their benefit.
He said MPYC is eager to cooperate with youths in the province to empower them and become self-reliance to support the development of their communities, province and country.
He said the assistance comes in the form of kava tools and kava stalks.
âNow we are left with only five youth groups to receive their support under the programme as they have already been identified, and we are waiting for them to get their assistance,â Subu said.
He said MPYC is facilitating the programme with the $10k they applied and received under the national ESP.
