Money for training

Money for training

$608 has been given by NZUSA to Youth Against Hunger, formerly Operation 21.

The money was raised by Students' Associations, as a contribution to the World Freedom from Hunger Campaign.

"The money will be used to train young people in the Pacific Islands and the Middle East," said NZUSA Treasurer. David Shand.

"Part of the money will go to the South Pacific Regional Agricultural College in Western Samoa to help purchase chemicals and equipment for their laboratory.

"Part of it will also go to the Community Education Training Centre in Fiji, where girls from various Pacific Islands learn cooking gardening techniques and other activities related to the home.

"On completion of their course, girls from the Centre return to their villages as extension workers.

"The balance of the money will go to a vocational training centre in Jerusalem run by the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA). where young men from Arab refugee camps undertake two-year courses in various trades such as carpentry, plumbing and welding."
