Youth

 

Providing a quality education, basic life skills and appropriate opportunities for young people is central to development and the realization of human rights. Tonga’s Strategic Development Framework 2015-2025 aims for a more progressive Tonga supporting a higher quality of life for all.Investing in young people as the future business and community leaders of tomorrow, is central to that vision.

Youth report demonstrates the value of the population and housing census for tracking progress towards development goals and international commitments related to young people. It provides evidence that can be used to develop policies and programs, so they address issues of highest priority. Many of the conclusions will be known but perhaps have not been easily quantified in the past. Some may even be a surprise. It is hoped that the results presented are of value and contribute to further research about young people in Tonga.
