Minister for Youth and Sports, Parveen Bala says the week-long Empowerment Training on Law and Order in Lautoka is a way to address the increasing incidents of youth violence.

Youths from Lautoka are taking part in this training.

Bala says it is aimed at providing young people with accurate knowledge, skills, and empowering them to become productive, self-reliant, and law-abiding citizens.

He adds Fiji’s laws provide numerous rights and protection for its citizens.

He adds young people are vulnerable to a range of protection risks and to deviating to the wrong side of the law.

Meanwhile, the Director of Pacific Centre for Peace Building, Florence Swami says the partnership between the Ministry and agencies is important as this will amplify youth issues in policy-making spaces.

The participants will also undertake training on sexual reproductive health and rights.
