Help educate Namamanuca Primary School students.

I am currently volunteering on Yanuya Island which is in the outer region of the Mamanuca Island group in Fiji and has a population of approximately 500 people. Yanuya Island is an hour fast ferry from the main island. It has no running water, limited electricity, a lack of medical supplies and most fruit and vegetables simply do not grow on the island.

Namamanuca Primary School is where I’ve been volunteering, it’s a small school which services students both from Yanuya Island and other surrounding islands. It has 150 students from Kinder to Year 8 and a boarding house where students from the surrounding islands stay during the week. The school receives very minimal government funding and there are substantial needs in all areas of educational assistance, school resources, community development, infrastructure and vocational support.

In my time so far I’ve noticed many areas of need including;

  • Tiled flooring for all classrooms; some classrooms have tarps for flooring which need to be removed and swept by the students each day as there are a large amount of insects present on the island.
  • A variety of reading books; many classrooms do not have enough books for the whole class to read at once.
  • A lack of basic school supplies such as pencils, paper and other stationary.
  • Medical/first aid supplies for the school; I found many students suffered from infected cuts/bites and the families often do not have access to the basic medical supplies to treat this.
  • Laptops for all teachers.
  • Basic school refurbishment; there are many missing window panes, broken floorboards etc.

The school also has their own wish list which includes a variety of small and major projects (wish list can be seen in the images).

I am hoping to fundraise some money to donate to the school so they are able to put it towards bettering the education for these students. They are so kind, positive and rich in life despite not having a lot.

I do appreciate that not everyone may be in a position to be able to help out, but I kindly urge you, whatever little you donate, it means a lot to the lovely children at Namamanuca Primary School. If you're struggling yourself and can't spare any money - that's cool - please consider sharing this page with your friends and networks as your contribution.

Thankyou in advance for your generosity in supporting me in raising money to help provide a better environment for their education.

We did it! We managed to raise enough money to purchase the supplies needed to put in tiled flooring in the Year 1/2 classroom! We also bought two wall fans, some paint, sheet metal and pipe fittings in order to work on other small projects around the school. The tiles. . . . .
