NATIONAL Capital District Governor Powes Parkop said a lot of money will be spent in the city to balance physical development with social and economic development.
He said this at Sogeri’s Koitaki Farm on Tuesday when visiting the Yu Yet Youth of Change Yoga Teacher Training Programme.
Parkop said he encouraged people to participate in the Walk for Life programme to live a healthy lifestyle.
“We want to create an avenue for our youths in the city to be active instead of being idle,” he said.
“We will create opportunities for them.”
Yoga and coaching director Fazilah Bazari said the Governor’s Walk for Life was an extension, which was working in collaboration with the Yoga for Life people.
“This is a programme where we are working with youths from different settlements who have been here for 52 weeks,” Bazari said.
“They are trained by teachers who have been trained in the previous years and currently have fulltime employment in teaching yoga and being role models back in their communities.
“They are bringing all these new people so that we can continue to have our yearly teacher programmes and these people can go back as champions and facilitators of change within their community which we are starting right now in NCD.
“We already have requests from people wanting us to go to other centres and provinces.” The National / One PNG
