Youth members of the Service for Peace clean up at Suva Point yesterday.
IF young people coming from different backgrounds can live and work together, then why can’t everyone else?
That is the simple question raised by the Suva-based youth group, Service for Peace Fiji.
It is an organisation that brings diverse groups together in service work to cross barriers of race, religion or national origin, and address urgent social needs.
The two-year-old youth group with close to 100 members from various ethnic backgrounds believes in unity, equality and peaceful living.
“We are asking and praying for peace for the whole nation,” said spokesman Rocky Kumar.
“Our aim is to break barriers and move towards a positive direction.”
Mr Kumar said the group was about passing messages through actions rather than speeches.
The group had its first gathering yesterday at the Suva foreshore area.
A church service was followed by a clean-up of the foreshore area.
This will be a monthly event for the group.
Mr Kumar said reaching out to the young generation was their ultimatum goal.
