Save the Children Fiji’s chief executive officer, Shairana Ali, said: “Education is key, a strategic priority and a goal for Save the Children within the 2022 to 2024 strategic plan and it’s also part of Save the Children International’s Global strategy for the period 2022 to 2024.

“We see it as something that will benefit children and will also help children achieve their ambitions.

“Save the Children’s partnership with the Ministry of Education is very important because it allows the organisation to reach those who are in genuine need.”

Permanent Secretary for Education, Heritage and Arts Anjeela Jokhan acknowledged Save the Children Fiji for its continuous support.
