THE Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji will invest about $600,000 to upgrade schools managed by the organisation, a majority of which is located in the Western Division.
The decision was made after the organisation's annual general meeting in Sigatoka last week.
Public relations officer Kamlesh Arya said about $2.6million would also be used to develop the University of Fiji Suva campus.
"This is to be financed from a bank loan," he said.
"Some other projects approved by the Sabha for this year and the next include building of a new classroom and staff office block at Nadroga Arya College estimated to cost about $100,000.
"We will also be building a $70,000 kindergarten at Nadi Arya Samaj Primary School and another at Vunikavikaloa Arya School costing about $50,000."
Mr Arya said refurbishment of Swami Shraddhanand Memorial Primary School would cost $50,000.
