The Veivueti Youth Club in Fiji grew out of the damage wrought by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

The storm smashed through Fiji in February last year causing widespread destruction.

One of the affected communities was Tokou village on Ovalau Island with once flourishing farms destroyed.

The Vuivueti Youth Club was seen as part of the solution by the village youth and with the help of the Pacific Horticultural and Agricultural Market Access or PHAMA this group has been at the forefront of improving farming techniques.

The club president, Joshua Kabulevu, spoke with Don Wiseman, and told him the group wants to take their farming to the next level.
