The FIJI Water Foundation will award grants totalling $1.2 million in 2023 to support 281 teachers.

Manager of the FIJI Water Foundation, Marie Smith, says these grants will support classroom projects covering a range of needs, from technology upgrades to learning excursions and career readiness equipment.

Smith says the foundation is honoured to work with educators across schools in Fiji through one of their most beloved incentives, and they hope the grant provides teachers with additional resources they need in time for term two and beyond.”
