NEEDY students from around the country will be able to access vital assistance to attend school if they are eligible to be assisted under the Freemasons Lodge of Fiji five-year school assistance program.

The organisation launched this program in Suva today.

Freemasonry Fiji Worshipful Master Andrew Naigulevu said for a long time, Freemasonary in Fiji had provided a lot of assistance throughout the community.

“For the past decade, Lodge of Fiji’s focus has moved towards the assistance of both primary and secondary school education by helping to ease the burden of low-income earners when it comes to purchasing school supplies for their children,” Mr Naigulevu said.

He said the five-year program was being channelled into two initiatives.

A total of 66 students – 10 students in Waimari Public School in Rakiraki, three students in Penang Primary School, 10 students in Nalagi Public School, 33 students in Yalavou Public School, seven students in Savusavu and three students in Suva – were assisted last year.
