A $10,000 sponsorship by HFC Bank yesterday launched its partner­ship with the Foundation for the Education of Needy Chil­dren (FENC) in Fiji.

“As Fiji’s only 100 per cent locally-owned bank, it is deep­ly honored to give back to the community,” HFC Bank general manager retail banking, Tony Ram, said.

“FENC Fiji works tirelessly in making education accessible to the poorest of the poor children in Fiji and empowering them to break the cycle of poverty.

“Education is an essential as­pect of a child’s life. A necessity that is vital to their future in so­ciety and employment.

“The onus is on us to provide these young minds with the tools to become sustainable and resourceful citizens.”

Mr Ram added that the spon­sorship was in line with HFC Bank’s strategy to continually engage in community develop­ment and its commitment to en­sure socio-economic growth at all levels of our society.

The FENC Fiji is a national initiative, registered under the Charitable Trusts Act (Cap 67) to serve as voluntary, non-political, not-for-profit, cause-oriented organisation that will provide educational and related support to the children of poor families in Fiji.

FENC Fiji chairman Ratu Meli Vesikula said: “On behalf of the poorest of the poor children of Fiji and the management of FENC Fiji, I would like to thank HFC Bank for their most gener­ous donation to the community.

“It portrays the spirit of love and care towards those who are less fortunate in our society.

“We admire and respect the spirit of kindness in launching this new partnership which will benefit the poor children of Fiji in the years to come.”
