Aviation for Humanity reached children on the island nation of Fiji thanks to our wonderful volunteers. Fiji, an Oceania country in the South Pacific, is an archipelago of more than 300 islands. Aviation for Humanity’s volunteer and traveler, John Ambecrombie, visited a school in Nadi. With the help of local volunteers, he was able to secure school supplies for fifty kids in the village school.
The organization annually serves an average of 300 students and their families. Since the foundation has been created, they have served 1,592 young people, 1,238 of whom have graduated. The school has a 97% rate of retention and is a vital piece of their community.
Aviation for Humanity was honored to support the Neustra Escuela. We thank them for providing us the opportunity to expand our global community and support youth education!
Aviation for Humanity ambassador, Paddy Shivanand, visited an orphanage in Moshi, Tanzania. Through the community of aviation, Aviation for Humanity was able to connect her with Mama Faraji, the founder of Tuleeni Orphan’s home. Paddy shares her experience here:
“Mama Faraji is a woman you cannot miss in a crowd. She will envelope you in her warm smile and happy hug as soon as you step into the Tuleeni Orphan’s home in Moshi, Tanzania. I had the privilege of visiting the children and young adults at Tuleeni Orphan’s Home in November 2018, thanks to the arrangements by Aviation for Humanity.
We are deeply grateful to Aviation For Humanity for putting together these gifts in attractive little bag for our kids here. This morning again we have sent 10 gift bags to another district of Nepal Grace home in Hetauda and we are holding 115 bags for seven of our homes in central and west homes to be given during our travel in January.
We look forward to that with special expectation based on our happy experience so far in the distribution of these cute bags in some of our homes in Kathmandu.
We want to say a big thanks to Aviation for Humanity.
Loknath and Naresh"
Aviation for Humanity would like to thank the residents of The House of Hope and the Kidstown International staff for facilitating the visit. A huge “thank you” goes to the Pacific Northwest Business Aviation Association (PNBAA) for supplying the funds to purchase school supplies and to the PNBAA members that volunteered their time to organize and pack over 600 pencil cases with more than 3000 items.
