BALE Senikauciri could not have made it through primary school without the support of the Farmers Carnival committee.

To thank the committee for their support and offer her help to other students, the 18-year-old and four others will represent their districts at the Farmers Carnival this year.

"My parents are vegetable farmers and they faced difficulties sending me to school," the Lau lass said.

"The Farmers Carnival committee paid my school fees and provided me with stationery when I was younger.

"Education is something I am very passionate about and I want all needy and underprivileged students to get educated."

Farmers Carnival committee president Udit Narayan said the annual fete focused on education for the poor and needy.

"We have no major sponsor this year but we remain hopeful," he said.

"We will be raising funds to continue helping children who are unable to afford stationery or school uniforms."

The other contestants are Doreen Kata, Manisha Dharshana, Kajal Lata and Amelia Tuifua and they will all advocate on the right of all children to have access to quality education.

The Farmers Carnival will start on June 21 and ends on June 28.
