A NON-PROFIT organisation from the United States has helped schools and underprivileged students in the Western Division as part of its trip to Fiji.

Samaaj Sewa Fiji USA has been in operation for the past 11 years and has helped underprivileged students with bags, school supplies, uniforms and shoes.

"We have helped schools such as Tataiya Memorial with a borehole and Vunimono Islamia with a water tank," organisation founder Parma Sharma said.

"We identify the needs of school and the neighbourhood. We do our best to fulfil their needs so the children can have a better environment for the future."

This month, a team from the organisation travelled to Fiji and assisted two families in Nadi and two schools in Sigatoka with school supplies, bags, shoes and uniforms.

Samaaj Sewa Fiji USA was founded in 2008 by Mr Sharma and is based in California, USA.
