BSP kick started the Foundation for the Education of Needy Children in Fiji’s fundraising drive for the 2016 School year by donating 10,000 dollars.
Country Manager Kevin McCarthy says being able to work with FENC has been very worthwhile given the task that the foundation carries out for the children of Fiji all year round.
FENC Fiji looks after the education needs for children who fall under the sector of the population who live well below the poverty line.
National Coordinator Joape Kunikoro says the donation is a welcome for a number of children who rely on the Foundation to get them through school.
“The money that they give, we use the funds in various, one is to pay for scholarships for the children, when I say scholarship I mean, we will buy school bags, stationary, school sandals that will ensure they go to school.”
The money will also go towards FENC’s current learning centers and the establishment of new ones.
BSP has been donating 10,000 dollars per year to the foundation since 2011.
