Project helps village school

A KINDERGARTEN at Saravi Village, Nadi, has been given a much-needed makeover by international volunteers.

Projects Abroad Fiji co-ordinator Maika Rasilisili said the repainting and refurbishment of the school was part of a project day initiative.

"Project day is an opportunity for Projects Abroad to identify a worthwhile project," he said.

"The reason we chose Saravi was because we saw there was a need there.

"We looked at the community's source of income and we found the villagers were on seasonal employment and did not have a steady source of income."

Saravi Mobile Playgroup director Waisea Naisoro said the school was meant for pre-schoolers.

"But because of the younger children between the ages of two and four, we have made space to involve them in our school curriculum," he said

"The school is within Saravi Village so the younger ones find it easy to enter the school and are very keen to learn."
