“SUSTAINABLE FOOD PROGRAMME”


VODAFONE ATH FIJI FOUNDATION joint venture with SANGAMFIJI FOUNDATION

SangamFiji Foundation in collaboration with Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation has launched a   Sustainable Food Programme to help those poor and needy students in our community who aren’t able to meet their daily needs in terms of food/clothing/stationery etc. 

The objective is to facilitate teaching of horticulture at schools, specially targeting poor children to enable them to grow vegetables at home and also generate some income for their family.

So far we managed to distribute vegetable seedlings to 43 schools in the western division and around 40 poor and venerable farmers. The schools are to accommodate the poor and needy students who don’t bring lunch to schools or doesn’t have proper school stationeries for the studies and promote horticulture in school involving the students.

Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation and TISI Sangam will now move in the rural areas to assist farmers with vegetable seedlings to grow for food and additional income to improve their living standards.  Seedlings of Egg Plant, Capsicum, Long Chilies, Tomatoes, and Cabbage seedlings would distribute to the poor in the communities.
