The Government of the Republic of South Korea is actively engaged in several South American countries in training young, unemployed and socially disadvantaged youths.
The training programs are focussed, primarily, on showing young people how to play football, but with secondary aims of imparting life skills, involving confidence, team work, motivation and self-reliance.
It is reported that following such training courses, many of the unemployed have been sufficiently energised to begin other forms of educational training and others have either found work or began to seek employment.
In the Solomons, of course, there needs to be other incentives to help young people to find meaningful employment, but following the presentation of credentials by His Excellency, Ambassador Mr Won-Jung Han yesterday, perhaps the Solomon Islands Government could begin to explore opportunities with the South Korean Ambassador to advance the interests and welfare of Solomon's young people.
