The USP Economics Students Association carried out volunteer work at the Fiji School for the Blind in Vatuwaqa last week.

The 38 student volunteers’ visit was part of the association’s initiative in giving back to the community.

The association, which includes 43 student members and five staff members, helped with the clean-up, gardening and also took refreshments, lunch, and groceries for the kids at the school.

Head of the School of Economics, Professor Satya Paul was overwhelmed by the talents and intellect from the students at the Fiji School for the Blind.

School of Economics co-ordinator Kushneel Prakash said they were very thankful and appreciative of the work done by the caretakers and management of the society in enabling the blind students to be very much part of the society.

“I am thankful to the management for allowing us to visit and carry out volunteer work.

“A lot of people often undermine the talents of these students but the level of intellect displayed by the students is admirable,” he said.

Association president Alfaaz Ismail said their visit was also to assure the students at the Fiji School for the Blind that they were not neglected and were cared for.

Meanwhile Fiji Society for the Blind administrator Barbara Farouk was thankful for the visit and said it meant a lot to the Society of the Blind.
