While in America we expect parents, merit/need scholarships, or the students themselves (fit with paying after-school jobs) to propel children into their tertiary studies, the villagers of Nakavika come together to raise funds for those students – this totaling up to tens of thousands of dollars they can’t easily earn when they rely on the weather for profits.
The Nakavika Project concerns are firmly based on education and health, which makes tertiary schooling to be near the top of our cares. Investing in the village’s already committed minds will pay back for years to come through what work and help these students can give their community post-university.
Garrett and I are fundraising to develop The Nakavika Project Scholarship Fund, which will benefit all the hopeful students of the village by shouldering costs of tuition and material/technology fees.
Objectives for Scholarship
While On Location
- Work with Turaga ni Koro (the village spokesman) and his committee on fundraising ideas for increasing the scholarship fund
- Coordinate specific fundraisers with all donations going toward supporting the youth’s tertiary education bills
While Working Remotely
- Fundraise by means of selling homemade items, collecting donations, etc. to support those students who request and pursue funding through The Nakavika Project, displaying their desire to further their education in a salient, genuine manner
