We're Shantaye & Sally and we're second year students at Northumbria Uni. We're planning to travel out to Fiji in July for a month to stay with a Fijian family and become part of their community.
By doing this we're aiming to raise money to support the local community, so that when we go out there we can provide classes in English and Maths, and also sporting activities and other extra curricular activities.
The money will go towards school supplies for education and extra curricular activities.
Many schools are in poor condition and devoid of basic materials. Poverty forces many children to drop out of education and many do not continue beyond primary school level. There is a very limited access to kindergarten schools and educational programmes for pre-school infants. Away from the classroom, there is a severe lack of extracurricular activities. Children in rural communities are often forced into a future of limited education and opportunity. Children, especially in the outer islands have no access to sporting clubs, sports equipment or resources, and a lack of sports structure and development within schools and communities.
