Hitching a ride to do homework.

Volunteers Ulrike and Franziska recently came back from Fiji and made a meaningful connection with many of the people we serve in rural RakiRaki. This mum and dad are flourishing after being supported for several months now. We sponsor their lovely and ambitious daughter with school expenses and travel fare to get to school. She was taken out of school last year as they couldn’t sustain the $1 each way bus fare and had taken to hitching a ride into town (35mins away) to try and share her friend’s books and stay up to date in the hope that she could return to school.

Slight reality check there for my kids and their peers.

We have also helped the family with gardening tools and seeds to be able to more effectively work their land. They recently harvested their first big batch of veggies and sold them in their local area.

Your support has literally changed the course of their daughter’s future and is making an enormous difference to their lives now…Vinaka!

Warmly,
Jane
