Rural schools, red tape and island time.

By September 8, 2012Newsletters

One of the schools we work with in rural RakiRaki lost 8 of its classrooms in a fire last week that they believe was deliberately lit.

The classrooms lost in a fire last week at Penang Sangham High School, RakiRaki

3 of the girls we support are among 180 students who now have to cram into a hall for lessons until the rooms can be rebuilt, which will potentially take up to a year. Rural schools and red tape and island time make for a slow process.

More pressing is the loss of books in the fire and the students who need them for upcoming senior exams.

So a Girl & her world is asking for your help to replace these books that aren’t able to be replaced by the school, the expense will be put back on the students.

Kids in rural Fiji don’t use computers and rely on their books to get them through. Your generosity could help these girls pass their senior exams.

I spoke with the principal earlier in the week and he is so grateful for the a Girl & her world support network…so thank you!

You can give to the Book Appeal in a few ways, you can click here and go through to the Give page on our website, or you can click here to support our team running in the Blackmore’s running festival next weekend!

OR maybe you’d like to be part of helping the school rebuild in other creative ways. Maybe your kid’s school community could create an artwork for their new rooms or collect and send over some stationery kits?

Thank you for your ongoing support, it’s changing lives…

Warmly,

Jane and the a Girl & her world team
