Activism; advocacy; empowerment; ARTivism - all part of a daily routine for me. This page is dedicated to just that.
WOMEN: the female sector making up half of the worlds population yet earning lower, owning less and denied more than the menfolk.
YOUTH: Young people between the teenage and adulthood stage of life. Youth are defined differently in different places. A challenge I find in Fiji is the age definition of youth. Many communities have 'youth' representatives who are over the age of 35. Some are in their fifties. This bothers me a great deal. I (personally) think that youth should be considered between 18 - 30. From 28 years on wards they should start to transition into adulthood and start to groom the younger ones into the youth field of activism and advocacy.
I am involved in youth work and community development. This section highlights some of the involvements I have had with community development aspect of my work and some of the training/ forum and activities I attend with a Youth focus.
