The kindergarten begins when the fence is completed

Singatoka, a small town on the Coastal road to Suva has a threatening river running through the centre of it. One recent flood swamped the Minister’s house and settled a foot high throughout the historic church. This Anglican Church sits dwarfed by the neighbouring Mosque, and struggles to survive. Yet Father Daniel, his wife Catherine, and Parish have a vision. To use their church as a kindergarten for the children of Singatoka. For the last 18-months they have worked with the Education Ministry to fulfil the criteria, and fundraised to cover the costs of its start-up.

Now they’re nearly there.
The kindergarten can start at the beginning of next year, if they can jump the last hurdle. The team heard their story, needing to build a perimeter fence for the children’s safety. They have installed most of the posts and have purchased some wire netting. Now Fj$1200 (NZ$800) will complete the project.
The group were warmly hosted, offered a delicious array of foods for lunch, and departed for Suva praying with them that their vision will be fulfilled.
It seemed to many as the bus departed, that so little investment from us, could make such a dramatic difference to them and the children of Singatoka.
