What’s good for Upolu is also good for Savaii!
The youth sub group of Samoa Victim Support Group, the SVSG Junior, is coordinating a ‘Book Drive’ project in response to a request from the community at Foailuga Savaii, for a library to assist with the children’s reading.
The request has driven the youth members of the SVSG Junior to call on the public to help donate any children’s books to support the children of Foailuga.
We all know that reading is important to a child’s academic progress and for the community at Foailuga to make this request highlights a community that is taking ownership of its role to nurture and develop our children’s education.
The Book Drive is for the whole month of November. There are 2 drop off outlets for donated books: SVSG’s Main Office next to the Police Station at Apia; and the Campus of Hope at Tuanaimato.
This is not the first time in which the SVSG Junior has reached out to support the community through a library project. A similar project was opened earlier this year at Faleasiu giving children at the Aana district access to reading books and study facilities for the children’s school work.
So come one, come all. Help us support the setting up of a library for the children of Foailuga and its neighbouring villages.
Together we can make a difference.
Samoa Victim Support Group is only a call away (685) 800-7874. If you have some important information that will save the life of someone close to you or indirectly connected to you please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a call.
That decision could be the best one you could make in this life.
SVSG is committed to protecting children and their rights, and requires all SVSG personnel to comply with SVSG's Child Protection Policy and Code of Conduct
