TELS student tells how FijiFirst solved struggles
For Rayveen Anand, finding funds to pay for her tertiary education and trying to gather the basic needs for her family was not an easy task. However, she was able to attend the Fiji National University by being under the Tertiary Education Loans Scheme (TELS) and after Government heard her family’s cry of being without water and electricity for a few months.
The FNU student is studying for a Bachelor of Education majoring in maths and computer science and was at the FijiFirst rally at Churchill Park, Lautoka, yesterday.
“I have been on the TELS scheme for the past two years. This is my third year being on the scheme and I would like to thank the FijiFirst Government for helping me out and paying my fees,” she said.
“One time we did not have water supply and electricity. Now they have provided us with the solar system, so my family is living with light at the moment because of this FijiFirst Government.”
