The newly created district of Wau Wari in the Morobe province is now in the process of establishing its own youth program aimed at supporting and engaging the youths in the development aspirations of the new district.
The Wau Waria district’s ‘Youth Empowerment Program’ was initiated by the Open Member Mr. Marsh Narewec, and for its effective implementation, the establishment of the youth council is the way forward.
This then leading to the National Youth Development Authority (NYDA) being invited for a one-day consultation which was held on the 10th of November.
The outcome of that consultation set forth three requirements for both parties to meet.
1. Establish partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU),
2. Commence Ward youth registration, and
3. Establish and formalize the Local, and District Youth councils respectively.
Present during the consultation were the District Administrator Mr. John Orebut, the Open Member’s Political Officer Mr. Hercules Jim, the Town Mayor, District officers and representatives from the communities.
The NYDA now looks forward to work together with the District to see the full establishment of the youth councils in Wau Waria.
