THE Yes Program for youth leaders has received another $500,000 allocation.
While delivering the 2019/2020 National Budget Address this evening, Fiji’s Economy Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said this would allow for more youths to engage grants that could assist them in their community projects.
“We will continue with our Yes Program with a funding of $500,000 awarding grants that now amount up to $30,000 given to each person,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
“I’m sure many of these recipients will be competing in our national youth awards event.”
