WESTA Travel Agents Visit School in Fiji’s Remote Yasawa Islands // (c) 2009 WESTA
Recently, a group of 14 WESTA agents took time from a 10-day Fiji fam tour to visit a school on Nacula Island, the most northern island in the Fijian Yasawa archipelago.
The agents came bearing gifts for the school children at Ratu Meli Memorial School, a facility serves more than 150 children. The island has no roads or cars, and electricity is supplied to the school by a generator. The school has an annual budget equivalent to about $4,000, so the donations of school supplies by the agents, such as flash cards, notebooks, pencils, etc. were in need. Cathy Mantonya of Sunspots International organized the supply-gathering effort prior to departure from the U.S.
