Secondary school education in Fiji is neither free nor compulsory, which is why we have been supporting a project since 2012 to help address this issue.  The Rotary Club of Tavueni Island has set up a fund to pay for secondary school education for students who would not otherwise be able to attend high school.  The success rate for these students, most of whom are from single parent families, is very high, with many going on to study at university.  Our aim this year is to raise $2000, to match the District grant we have received, allowing our Club to donate $4000 towards this very worthwhile project.  If you would like to make a donation, payments can be made to the following account and you will receive a receipt for tax purposes in due course:

You are invited to support the Walk for Wishbone on Sunday 26 May, run by the Wishbone Orthopaedic Research Foundation of NZ.  This is a fledgling event raising funds towards research into improving surgery and treatment for joint replacements, broken bones, bone infections and cancers, congenital disorders in children and sports injuries.  The fun walks are designed for everyone – from the 1km leisurely stroll around Eden Park’s concourse, when you can also have your photo taken with some well-loved former NZ rugby players; to the Stadium stair challenge – either 1,103 steps (top of Sky Tower), or 1,751 steps (top of Empire State Building), going up, down and around the turf.  Following the walk, participants can find out more about orthopaedic research, learn how to best rehabilitate from injuries or surgery and be in for spot prizes.
