Prior to that it was part of Fenc Fiji ( Foundation for the Education of Needy Children in Fiji NZ) Its primary purpose is to reduce poverty to a negligible level through the provision of educational support and related activities to the underprivileged children.
The Trustees travel to Fiji and other schools in new Zealand at their our own expenses to scope, assess and deliver funding and associated products to the most needy.
