Six non-profit organisations in Fiji have been awarded annual grants totalling over FJD$700,000 from the FIJI Water Foundation today.
This year's grant recipients are Beacon Media, Cure Kids, Vision Fiji, Rotary Pacific Water for Life Foundation, Leadership Fiji and Save The Children.
The six recipients will focus on providing tutoring support for year three students in the Yaqara Valley, providing early detection of rheumatic heart disease in remote communities and donating books to schools throughout Fiji, funding two new boreholes and providing WASH education in the recipient villages, developing emerging leaders in Fiji and bringing WASH programs to rural communities.
Director of Philanthropy for The FIJI Water Foundation, Kaitlyn Yates says the community grant recipients have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to improving the lives of Fijians.
The Director says whether that be through providing clean water access to rural communities, supporting the educational environment for children or providing vital healthcare services, they are honoured to work with these organisations and thank them for their impact throughout Fiji.
The FIJI Water Foundation will now be accepting applications yearly, with applications set to open in August for grant work to commence in 2023.
