United Nations International Youth Day

International Youth Day games

The indoor stadium came alive on Sunday with over 150 youths from churches within Tabubil competing in volleyball games organised by the Western Flalok Netball Club and supported by Tawap Kamen Investment (TKI) Limited.

TKI, a partly owned company by shareholders from the local area, has been a very good supporter of the Flalok Netball Club’s community organised events.   

The volleyball games were arranged purposely for the youths to participate to celebrate the United Nations International Youth Day, which falls on August 12.

Youths encouraged to stand together

Here in the nation’s capital, the Sanap Wantaim Campaign group in collaboration with a number of non-government organizations supported by the National Capital District Commission office commemorated the day at the Waigani Central, ‘Stop N Shop’ car park.

An outdoor stage was set up; alongside tents housing the different NGO’s with the general public invited to visit the stalls and collect informative brochures and pamphlets.

The theme for this year is “Youth building Peace.”
