Youth Leaders formulate mechanisms to strengthen Governance  and Accountability structures

 

 

80 Youth leaders from the Naitasiri and Bau divisions of the Fiji Methodist Church convened at Navuso Village Hall over the Diwali weekend to discuss ways of strenghtening their governance and management of their respective youth groups.    The Youth Forum titled : Being Relevant to the Outside World encouraged and empowered the Youth leaders to ensure that decision-making in their groups were transparent, accountable and fair to its members and leaders.

 

Opening the Youth Forum at the Adi Arieta Koila Memorial Church, the Divisional Superintendant Reverend Kitione Raibevu highlighted the importance of having integrity in all aspects of leadership, and urged young leaders to take up their leadership roles in their respective circuits and communities. 

 

The workshop, being presented in the i-taukei language aimed to empower leaders in theDivisions, with information on good governance and how the principles of transparency, accountability and consensus can lead to more effective and inclusive decision making in the community, and more efficient implementation of decisions.  This was then transferred to the formulation of the Groups' Regulations, which captured the Vision, Mission, Objectives of the Youth groups in the Methodist Church.  The first draft has seen the development of rules that are contextualised to the members needs and preferences.  

 

TI Fiji also introduced its Advocacy and Legal Advice Centre (ALAC) and Youth Integrity Promotion Programme to the community, and discuss how these activities can assist members of the Naitasiri and Bau divisions. TI Fiji’s ALAC programme provides free legal advice for victims and witnesses of corruption, and it assists with corruption-related complaints. The workshop in Navuso is a follow-on from TI Fiji’s workshop for youth leaders at Dokanaisuva Methodist Church, Delaivalelevu Circuit held in March 2014. Participants at that workshop enjoyed learning about effective leadership and the responsibilities of committees, and developed action plans for their respective communities that included succession planning and skills development.   

 

The first Panel Discussion included speakers from the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Pacific Youth Council, National Council of Women, Young People's Department and United Nations' Development Programme.

 

The forgoing Panel Discussions included Ministers from the Naitasiri Division: Reverend Joeli Ravualala, Reverend Mosese Seruiratu, Reverend Malakai Namara, Reverend Tajimi Vakaloloma, Reverend Jioji Rinakama, Reverend Mosese Koroimata, General Secretary of the Division Mr Kitione Radrodro, Pacific Conference of Churches Youth Officer Mr Manasa Vatanitawake.This workshop in Navuso was a great opportunity for TI Fiji to once again show that we can help individuals and empower them with a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities.”
