Bags and paint gift

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, April 09, 2013

MORE than 600 school bags and building paint were distributed to some schools in the Western Division that were affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan last year.

The gift was a joint effort of the Foundation for the Education of Needy Children in Fiji (FENC) and Dulux Paints.

FENC representative Kriti Karti said they wanted to assist cyclone-affected schools recover quickly from the losses.

She said the bags would be distributed to schools affected by the recent disasters late last year.

"FENC Fiji was tasked with identifying the schools and those selected include Nadi Primary School, Lautoka Primary School and Lomawai Primary School.

"In addition, Dulux Paints has confirmed complementary paint vouchers valued at $1500 for each of the schools.

"They have been looking for such projects as part of the company's Corporate Responsibility Program and decided to approach FENC Fiji."

FENC in Fiji is an initiative that provides educational and related support to the children of the poorest of poor families in the country. The organisation was set up in late 2009.
