Schoolchildren of Nanuku Settlement, Vatuwaqa are benefitting from United States of America volunteers who tutor them on subjects they need help in besides having their homework done.
The national programme coordinator of the Foundation for the Education of Needy children (FENC) in Fiji, Mere Tikoduadua, said it was a way to help the students improve academically.
“This is a way we can help this community by tutoring their students so that they can improve academically,” she said.
“We check their school reports to make sure that they are benefitting from the volunteers.”
The US coordinator for volunteers, Lucy Robeson, said tutoring the students was challenging.
“Trying to keep the children focussed is very difficult but we try our best to help them,” Ms Robeson said.
“We are doing our part and we hope that the parents also help by reading to them or help them to read.”
Kelera Masi, one of the students tutored, said the volunteers were helpful and the students needed to take advantage of the opportunity.
“We are shy to ask the teachers at school that we don’t understand but with these volunteers we can tell them what we don’t understand,” the 18-year-old said.
“Tutorial help from them has really boosted our confidence and we should take advantage of the opportunity.”
Tutorial hours are from 3pm to 5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
