THE Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa supports government's initiative to alleviate poverty and make Fiji a knowledge-based society.
General manager Scott Williams says since opening in 2009 and introducing its Community Care program, the resort, its colleagues and guests have given time, labour and resources and organised more than $100,000 in funding to improve nearby Malomalo Primary School.
Mr Williams said the overwhelming success of the InterContinental Fiji's Community Care program was leading to bigger things, with the Ministry of Education collaborating to improve education in the Natadola community.
"We're now looking to expand our efforts to other schools, and are delighted the ministry is getting involved to help identify where help is most needed," he said.
"The resort's program is assisting the ministry fulfil outcomes of the Education Sector Strategic Development Plan.
"Our Community Care initiative has shown that sometimes, all it takes is for someone to take the first step.
"The immediate positive impact on attendance rates, learning success and community support has attracted other organisations who like us, are in a position to make a difference in improving the quality of education for Fijians."
Mr Williams said the resort was known as the People's Resort and they were committed to assisting the people improve their livelihood.
"This is a labour of love for us," he added.
