The Foundation for Rural Integrated Enterprise N Development (FRIEND)
in partnership with APCO Coatings and Waterfront Hotel provided a one
week artistic mural painting project for young people with the final goal of producing a mural painting in a public arena for the community to enjoy. Unemployed youths from various youth groups (Topline Youth and Waiyavi) and high school students on holiday from around Lautoka were able to showcase their artistic skills and their basic mural painting skills. Approximately ten youths invested their time and efforts in ensuring that the mural was completed on time. It was encouraging to see that each day began or ended with a prayer.
