FUTURE PROJECTS

Safe crossing for more than 100 children        
On the island of Vanua Levu, over 100 children have to make the dangerous journey across the Korotari River to get to and from school each day.  This involves wading, often up to chest high, through the fast flowing river. For the smaller children who are unable to wade across, it involves clinging to an inflated inner tube and being pulled across.

Children of Fiji, in conjunction with the Government of Fiji, is working on the provision of a 55 metre suspension bridge across the river to give these children (and around 80 adults) a safe way across the river

 

   
       
Shoes for children    
Many families in Fiji are struggling and parents are often unable to afford to buy shoes for their children. These children might live miles from their school and have to walk barefoot on rough ground to get there and back each day. As a result many children suffer from sores and infections

 

 
   
First Aid boxes for kindergartens and school    
We continue to provide First Aid boxes for schools and kindergartens. Many schools and kindergartens do not have any basic first aid resources to deal with minor ailments. Small injuries can often become infected and lead to further complications. We have decided to produce 'Children of Fiji' First Aid boxes (containing such things as plasters, bandage, antiseptic cream, antiseptic wipes, eyewash).

If you would like to sponsor a box for a school for 20, please contact us.       Contact

   
     

 

Solar lanterns    
Many families live in rural locations without electricity. For families with young children this can make life very difficult. Many families will resort to a bottle filled with kerosene and a rag inserted in the neck , to burn and provide light if the children wake during the night. This is obviously very dangerous but, for just 10, we can provide these families with a solar lantern
