Six students of South Taveuni Primary School on Taveuni Island will now have a reason to smile as they will be receiving assistance.

This was after their head teacher Pratosh Kumar received a cheque of $350 from Northern Charity Alli­ance (NCA), to help these students with their educational needs.

Mr Kumar said there were some students without school bags, school uniform and stationery.

“This is the third week of school and after my assessment I found out there were some students strug­gling,” Mr Kumar said.

“I wrote to NCA and within days they sent a representative Jagat Prasad from Labasa to deliver the cheque to me.

“I am very grateful to NCA for choosing to help a school which is in a remote area.”

“The money will also be used to help a student who lost his father recently.”

“The school was built in 1958 in Vuna District and currently we have student roll of 502 from Year One to Eight with 20 teachers.”

Northern Charity Alliance presi­dent Arunesh Vishwa said they felt honoured to help out. They have been providing assistance to students from villages and settle­ments.

“NCA is a Non-profit Organisa­tion (NGO) focusing on education, health, poverty alleviation and cli­mate change,” Mr Vishwa said.

“We fundraise to collect funds to assist the most vulnerable and dis­advantaged.

“Our objectives are in line with the sustainable development goals.”
