2022 Education appeal

Education is a key aspect of our Friendship, with a focus on supporting the learning of young people from Covalima district. We provide support in a variety of different ways including:

  • Scholarships for young men and women to continue their studies at a senior secondary, vocational and tertiary level.  Fields of study include primary school teaching, nursing, community development,  agriculture, hospitality, administration and construction.
  • Resources for the Suai Senior Secondary school library including multi-lingual books, science equipment and staffing.
  • Providing books to support the delivery of English language training in schools and at the Covalima Community Centre (CCC).
  • Funding the salary of the Education Program Coordinator at the CCC who is responsible for the management of all education programs including reporting on scholarship progress and employment outcomes.

We seek your support for these important education programs and ask you to please make a donation to our Annual Appeal.

Thank you!
