Unemployed youths take bold stand to change


UNEMPLOYED youths who attended a Safe Cities campaign organised by UN Women at Gerehu market in Port Moresby wanted to view opportunities available in skills-training organisations in the city.
National Capital District Safe Cities project officer Daisy Moses said the programme was part of the World Youth Skills Day celebrations which was to be held on Saturday but moved forward.
“This programme is aimed to help young people out of school and unemployed to identify opportunities that these skill training organisations offer,” Moses said.
“That is why we have invited organisations such as Ginigoada, The Sanap Wantaim, Creative Kanaka, City Mission, Tvet, and the NCDC Youth desk.”
Some of the organisations invited failed to show up.
Moses said they were invited to promote the training they offered.
“The safe cities programme is one of many activities run under the UN Women development programme.
“Although, we focus on a wide range of youth development programmes in Port Moresby, we also host other events to promote safety at markets and bus stops because they are where women and girls are harassed.”
Sanap Wantaim Youth campaign leader Bronwyn Kili said the campaign was to make the city safe not only for women but for everyone else.
