A proposal to build a primary school in Korovuto, Nadi was made to the Minister for Education today.
Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Education, Aiyaz Sayed‑Khaiyum met with the members of Yaadein Vision Group who have made the proposal to build the school.
Yaadein Vision International Director, Bobby Mishra says they have been assisting people in Fiji following natural disasters and also contribute towards the education sector.
He said their proposal to build a school in Korovuto was another way of giving back to their country of birth since the organisation operates in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and United States Fiji.
Minister for Education, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum welcomed the group's idea and said he looked forward to receiving a detailed submission on the school project.
Sayed-Kahiyum says the reality is that there is a need to continuously improve Fiji’s education system.
Yaadein Vision Australia also presented a cheque of $108,000 to Yaadein Vision Fiji for the proposed school project.
Meanwhile, Yaadein Vision Group will be distributing 800 food ration packs, kerosene stoves, mattresses, pots and solar generators to Fijians affected by Tropical Cyclone Josie and Keni.
These will be distributed in affected areas in Nawaka, Korociri Road and Qeleloa Road in Nadi, Ba, Tavua and Lautoka.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
