Vodafone ATH Fiji Founda­tion donated tablets, Wi-Fi devices and internet con­nection for a year worth $2500 to Lavena District School in Taveu­ni, on Wednesday.

“Now, the children of Lavena will be equally connected to the world like most schools in Fiji, said Manager Vodafone North Arunesh Vishwa said.

Mr Vishwa said this was a proud moment for the school, children and the community as a whole as all will benefit from the mEduca­tion package.

Head teacher of the School Il­aisa Deke said the internet pack­age would assist the children of Lavena with their research and studies.

“These students desperately needed to have access to the in­ternet and tablets,” Mr Deke said.

“It will assist youths and even teachers who want to do long dis­tance study,” he said.

Foundation executive Amba­lika Devi said the organisation reached over 100 schools through their mEducation technology.

“The rollout consisted of tab­lets, Wi-Fi devices and internet connection free for a year,” Ms Devi said

“Our aim is to reach as many schools as we can, she said.

“The Vodafone ATH Fiji Foun­dation is Fiji’s leading corporate charity,” she said.

Ms Devi added that Vodafone has invested over $19 million in connecting and transforming the lives of ordinary Fijians since its inception in 2003.
