The Asco Foun­da­tion has do­nated $15,000 to sup­port the Foun­da­tion for the Ed­u­ca­tion of Needy Chil­dren (FENC Fiji).

This is the sec­ond such do­na­tion in as many months.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and di­rec­tor for Asco Mo­tors and Foun­da­tion Trus­tee, Craig Sims, said: “Our prior do­na­tion in Jan­uary 2020, al­lowed for the pro­vi­sion of 338 school bags for chil­dren.

“With this do­na­tion, we are hop­ing for a sim­i­lar amount to be pro­vided to chil­dren im­pacted by TC Harold and fam­i­lies im­pacted by COVID-19 re­lated im­pacts,” he said. “The Asco Foun­da­tion views ed­u­ca­tion as the most im­por­tant re­source for Fiji, to al­low chil­dren to grow into in­quis­i­tive and in­formed mem­bers of so­ci­ety. This do­na­tion will go a small way in help­ing some chil­dren learn and grow.”

FENC Fiji Of­fi­cer – In Charge Na­tional Op­er­a­tions, Priya Lata, said: “The Asco Foun­da­tion has come through once again to sup­port our team.

“We are grate­ful for the foun­da­tion’s con­tin­ued sup­port, es­pe­cially dur­ing this chal­leng­ing time.”

The Asco Foun­da­tion has been a sup­porter of FENC Fiji, which since its in­cep­tion, has as­sisted more than 17,000 Fi­jian chil­dren with ba­sic school sup­plies.

The re­cent do­na­tion from the Asco Foun­da­tion was for more than 40 road safety kits for schools around Viti and Vanua Levu.
