The Foundation for the Education of Needy Children in Fiji (FENC Fiji) conducted a Public Support Campaign in August 2017. The campaign was launched at Suva’s Albert Park Convention Centre by the Head of European Delegation, Ambassador Andrew JACOBS on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 3.00pm – 5.00pm.

With the generous support of the FijiFirst Government in its education programme, FENC Fiji in past years has extended its support to over 7,000 children — complementing Government assistance in tuition fees and travel – by providing school uniforms, sandals, bags and stationery, and operating Homework & Learning Centres in areas where the needy communities are concentrated.

Theme
