St Vincent de Paul to launch “Assist a School” project

This coming Friday the Society of St Vincent de Paul in Auckland is  launching its “Assist a School” educational project appeal.

The “Assist a School“ educational project appeal is a new initiative from the Society of St Vincent de Paul and is aimed at raising funds to support schools in the Asia /Pacific area that struggle to access the quality educational resources that are fundamental to the learning of their students.

Each year, schools will be chosen from partner countries to develop a nominated project based on the educational needs of their students.

This year the proceeds from the “Assist a School” educational project appeal will go to projects in two schools in Samoa: the refurbishment of the Food and Technology room  at St Mary’s College and providing specialised training to improve the skills of the staff and caregivers at the Fiamalamalama School for IHC (Samoa).

St Vincent de Paul hope to extend this programme to their four partner countries next year.

The launch will take place on Friday 20th July at Liston Hall (corner of Hobson and Wyndham street next to St Patrick’s Cathedral) at 6:30pm till 8:00pm.
