YOUTHS engaged in cleaning and beautifying Madang are calling on their peers to stop causing trouble and join them.
A group who are working along the Divine Word University Modilon campus said they were proud to be recognised for contributing to Madang’s development.
The youth leaders said they had no other skills to find well-paid jobs, but were content with the little contribution they made to make Madang a town to be proud of.
Madang Technical College teacher Mandi Matai said the provincial government should be commended for using the youths in such projects, adding that the programme was a success with the overwhelming support from the community and businesses.
He said such initiatives had been overlooked in the past.
“The youths’ development initiative must be seen as of great importance for tomorrow’s development with proper planning and implementation processes put in place,” Mr Matai said.
