MANY unfortunate children will go back to school with a smile next year, thanks to the generosity of Greymouse Investment Limited Fiji.

This after the company gave $500 to Save the Children Fiji (SC Fiji) to show their commitment towards helping SC Fiji in its activities to support local children.

Greymouse Investments Limited director Marisa Wiman said they chose SC Fiji as the charity organisation the company would work with to provide awareness, funds as well as basic needs and wants.

"Our company believes in promoting education as it is very crucial in building a promising future," said Ms Wiman. "This donation is just the beginning of the organisation's contribution towards SC Fiji."

She said 90 per cent of the company's clients were based in Australia, Solomon Islands and Fiji. SC Fiji chief executive officer Chandra Shekhar said the contribution would be used to buy stationery for children who came from families living below the poverty line.

"The organisation acknowledges with deep appreciation the kind and generous gesture by Greymouse Investments," said Mr Shekhar. "Such donations would help assist many children to cater for their educational needs for the new school year."

He said about 2000 stationery packs would be distributed in the Central, Western and Northern divisions under SC Fiji's educational assistance program.
