More than 100 students in the Nadroga Navosa province will be receiving much needed educational assistance today.

This is after Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort partnered with Fiji Kids to assist needy children with stationery and associated supports .

The 2016 school gears presentation will be held at the St Joan of Arc School in Sigatoka.

The two partners have been involved with this initiative for the past four years.

Resort general manager Peter Hopgood said it was their way of helping and supporting people in need.

“From an Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort perspective we play a small part of the day,” he said.

“This is our first community project for the year. We provide catering and support throughout the day so that the sponsors spend time with their sponsored children.”

“This is by far one of the best initiatives I have seen in Fiji. It is helping the poor of the poor and makes an enormous difference to these young children and their families.”

Fiji Kids is a non-governmental organisation co-founded by Julian Hoskinson and Sunil Kumar in 2010.

The Fiji Kids’ mission is to support the needy children through their overseas sponsors, thus allowing children to achieve their career and to fulfill their lives.

Last year at the same venue, they catered for over 270 people which included 120 children and their families.

The resort provided meals, entertainment and activities.
