NGO offers help

FORMED in 2012 to operate on the principles and visions of former indentured labourer Chinnamma Lala, Australia-based NGO Reach 4 Your Future foundation wants to establish four IT centres in Fijian schools this year.

NGO president Ganesh Sen said the 100 members of the foundation wanted to increase their presence in Fiji.

"An event was held to officially launch our foundation at the State Parliament of Victoria, Australia, earlier last week," Mr Sen said.

"This is history in the making. For the first time, an Australian NGO of Fijian origin has hosted high level dignitaries at the parliament premises."

"We now want to work with similar organisations internationally and build our program to the greater benefit of our children and communities in Fiji."

The foundation is presently looking to find innovative ways to spread awareness about diabetes and financial literacy in schools around the country.
