NUKU'ALOFA, Thursday 25th June 2020: GO GREEN! a youth-led community initiative of TYEE, received their Certificate of Sponsorship from the Tonga Health Promotion Foundation this morning at the Epworth Hall. It is indeed an honour to be welcomed into the fight and movement against Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) in Tonga, or as the Minister of Health, Hon. Associate Professor 'Amelia Afuha’amango Tu'ipulotu quoted, this “tsunami” (NCD) invading and terrorizing the health of our people.
The question is, how can the youth contribute? And ensuring that our contribution is sustainable and applicable to the other vulnerable unemployed youth who are still out there. We like to believe, the answer to that is here with us in TYEE! We are determined to challenge each and every staff and registered youth of TYEE to make a difference in our fight of NCD in Tonga.
“The youth should lead today”, -Hon. Minister 'Amelia Afuha’amango Tu'ipulotu.
TYEE GO GREEN! is proud to team up with Tonga Health and we are grateful for their wonderful support and sponsorship. This will enable TYEE to further our shared objectives in promoting an active and healthy Tonga. After all, your health is your responsibility. It's our home, our future, our responsibility. TYEE GO GREEN!
