MORE NGOs are expected to benefit from the Social Welfare Ministry's grants to voluntary organisations scheme this year.

Last year the scheme provided aid to organisations such as the Senior Citizens Organisation in Ba, Life Line Counselling Services, Veilomani Boys Home in Ba, Fiji School for Special Education, St Christopher's Home and Dilkusha Children's Home.

In total, about 15 NGOs were assisted last year through the scheme and more are expected to benefit this year following the government's budget allocation of $200,000.
