Papatoetoe Fiji Indian Youth Group


The Fiji Indian Youth group was founded by Mr. Mor­ganan Four months ago. He started look­ing for young gen­tle­man who could lead a team of youth into bat­tle­field of the cul­tural con­text. The Youth group now con­sists a full com­mit­tee and is run­ning smoothly. The youth have been work­ing with Mr. Mor­ganan assist­ing the Senior Cit­i­zens in their other projects and seat­ings to arrange tables, chairs and other things.

The Youth group is keen in organ­is­ing fund rais­ing in Jan­u­ary 2012 to assist the poor and needy peo­ple. There projects are now being looked into and will be for­warded for approval soon.

There are about twenty two young peo­ple in the group and they are look­ing for­ward to move on and on with the HHRF(NZ)

The youth group was needed to sup­port all of our organ­i­sa­tions as we have the wom­ens organ­i­sa­tion, Senior Cit­i­zens organ­i­sa­tion, we saw a need for the youth group so accord­ing to the trust Mor­ganan went out to form a group for youths from Fiji. This was formed in this year in August after the Shree Krishna Janam Astmi when I saw a group of youth assist­ing the ramayan man­dali from day one of the Festival.

Morganan’s own words — I saw these mar­velous young boys as help­ing hands and I thought that this is what we need. So he started to talk with the group and came for­ward with the name Anil Chand to be the Pres­i­dent. The com­mit­tee was formed by the nom­i­na­tion from the HHRF(NZ). They vouched to do all the pro­grammes nec­es­sary for the organisation.

Last month the senior cit­i­zens asso­ci­a­tion (Fiji Indi­ans) cel­e­brated deep­awali fes­ti­val of lights and the youth group was a big assis­tance and as the organ­i­sa­tion holds up any func­tions they are there to help us all. The youth group is really active and hope to run a fund rais­ing din­ner next year.

The group is look­ing for­ward to assist the organ­i­sa­tions under the umbrella organ­i­sa­tion to make sure every­thing runs smoothly. We are really proud to have the youth group that ful­fills our requirements.

The youth group now is doing some projects in the com­mu­nity such as help­ing com­mu­nity in var­i­ous ways and look­ing for­ward to meet other oblig­a­tions they have.
