“Screens for Schools” – Give Second Life to your Electronics
Beqa Lagoon Resort is proud to have a lasting, strong bond with the communities of both Rakua and Raviravi villages located on either side of the resort. Our guests visit these villages during their stay with us to learn more about the history, culture and the way of life in Fiji and specifically on Beqa Island. Many of our guests form lasting bonds with the villagers and staff they meet. One of our most popular visits is to the local schools, to the meet the children and join in their excitement as they teach traditional songs and dance in Fijian.
Visitors usually like to bring the kids a small assortment of school supplies; books, pencils, notepads and crayons. Now we are offering everyone the opportunity to provide the children of Beqa Island with a learning tool that will help them to be competitive in this quick developing world. We are requesting donations of any old and/or unwanted computer equipment for the local schools on the island. This will enable the children to develop computer literacy skills that will help them as they move forward through their education and career path. If you have an older phone, or a flat screen TV you would like to donate, we can find a new happy owners for those too!
If you have any of the items noted above that you think might be helpful to the people of Beqa, we have set up a location within the USA where you can ship them to. We will then take care of transporting the products to Fiji and on to Beqa, including the customs fees, etc. . If you are interested in helping, please ship to Second Life, 12902 Via del Toro, Poway, CA 92064 or call 1-800-542-3454.
