Youths from three vil­lages in the prov­ince of Ra have suc­cess­fully com­pleted weeks of train­ing on per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and self­im­prove­ment. Dubbed the ‘Seed of Suc­cess’ work­shop, the train­ing saw 90 youths from Na­mataveikai, Malake and Bu­calevu vil­lagers at­tend­ing. Fa­cil­i­tated and funded by the Min­istry of Youth and Sports, the work­shop fo­cused mostly on chang­ing the youths’ at­ti­tude to fo­cus on their self-de­vel­op­ment. Youth min­istry staff mem­ber Keasi De­lana said the Seed of Suc­cess train­ing, when com­pleted suc­cess­fully, would en­able the youths to know what was re­quired of them in their com­mu­nity and to de­velop their po­ten­tial. “We all want to grow up suc­cess­ful in our com­mu­ni­ties and in a ru­ral set­ting it means be­ing ‘some­one’ in your vil­lages and set­tle­ments,” Mr De­lana said.

Head­man and Mataiveikai vil­lage youth ad­vi­sor, Jovil­isi Mu­loca, said ev­ery youth needs to at­tend train­ing or work­shops to help them de­velop into ma­ture per­sons.

“The work­shop also taught the youths to cre­ate a per­sonal de­vel­op­ment plan for self-im­prove­ment and in­stilled in youths the im­por­tance of time man­age­ment which is directly linked to gen­eral and fi­nan­cial dis­ci­pline and suc­cess” Mr De­lana said.
