Vunimoli Islamia College has started a new venture to help needy children of the school.

Formerly known as Vunimoli Secondary School and 15kilometres away from Labasa Town, the school has showed immense support for its needy students.

With the help of the Duke of Edinburgh International Awards Programme (DEIAP) and the Vodafone ATH Foundation the school bought two beehives to kick-start their income- generating project, said the school’s principal, Subhash Chandra.

“We have two beehives now and have just harvested our first batch of honey – two litres; this is expected to double in the next harvest in October,” Mr Chandra said.

“With the funding we also managed to build our very own poultry farm and opened a small stationery shop. This income-generating project has really helped our school; not only the school but the needy students,” he said.

“So far students who are in desperate need of books and other financial help have been helped.

“The school is planning to start other projects like vegetable farming, shoe repairs and a hair salon for the school. In this way the school will also be using the students’ talents,” he said.
