Although this will be my final President’s report it is not the one I was expecting to write.

Three years ago the committee decided that our tenth container would be our last and we prepared to close the book on Library Aid International Inc.

RECENT Rotary Fiji Schools Project

“Library Aid International sent a twenty-foot container of books and educational materials including 14 boxes of stationery, pens and pencils from the Lion Heart organisation which the Project team distributed to schools and which was gratefully received by many students.

This provision of library books and resources was a tremendous boost to the support the project could provide for the schools. One school worked out that the books they received would have cost the school $10,000 AUD. These small rural schools receive about $ 2000 AUD per term to cover all school running costs. A bonus was the sale of this container, which LAI allowed the project to use to cover the cost of wharf and customs fees in Fiji.

It is heartening to see how the school leaders and teachers are inspired to do the best for the students.”
