Save the Children Fiji removes restrictions

SAVE the Children Fiji has made its assistance to families this year much easier by removing restraints on the number of children in each family who qualify for education assistance.

In the previous years, the regulation was that only two children per family qualified for the assistance.

CEO Raijeli Nicole said under the new development, all children would benefit from the assistance.

"This year we have also made the application process easier for families by removing restraints to the number of children in each family that qualify for assistance," she said.

"This year if the family registers five children and we have available stationery packs, we will assist all the children rather than just two in the family, which were the regulations in previous years.

"At Save the Children Fiji we believe that all children have a right to education but just being able to go to school isn't enough."

Mrs Nicole said the program, which ran for about 23 years, gave children a chance to be active with the resources they needed to achieve success.

She added all their three offices would be distributing packs to those who qualified in Labasa, Lautoka and Suva.

"We believe that children all over Fiji, in all cities and rural areas, should have equal access to be able to achieve success in education and this program helps support that. Stationery packs are expected to be available for collection on January 23 and 24 from our offices in Suva, Labasa or Lautoka."
