Kean launches Sow a Seed program

April 12, 2019 4:23 pm

The Fiji Corrections Service launched a program called Sow a Seed in Suva today aimed at assisting youths who are incarcerated.

With over 300 inmates between the ages of 18 to 25, the program seeks to find volunteers who can mentor and sponsor them to be successful in life.

Commander Francis Kean says the increasing number of youths that enter prison on a daily basis is a concern and this program will enable the Fiji Corrections to work with relevant partners to give them a second chance.

He says there is potential for change in some of the youths and there is a great need for relevant partners and organizations to give them opportunities to grow.

“The many volunteers we have the better, the more merrier because this is a huge number 315 and as I said you know we have 222 that have reached secondary school education and 25 that are at tertiary level, so there is a pool of knowledge within this youth group.”

Kean is calling on Fijians who can support or want to mentor youths for a good cause to come forward and work towards building a better Fiji.
