Special Needs Education

NGF supports the local special needs school in Yaroi, near Savusavu, Fiji. The school works with students with intellectual and physical disabilities, who otherwise might be left isolated in their village. Teachers help students accept their various conditions and work to show how students can make an influence in their local communities. Some children go on to careers they never thought possible - one became a famous rugby player! NGF provides volunteers of all varieties, a wide range of exercise equipment and books, and musical instruments available nowhere else on the island. We funded the Music Therapist for one year, who trained other teachers to continue to balance students' lives through music.
