Bank South Pacific Samoa donated $2000 cash towards a project that will help Aoga Fiamalamalama display and sell handicrafts made by students as part of their classroom learning.
Aoga Fiamalamala is a non government school that was established by parents in 1979 to meet the needs of Samoa’s intellectually disabled children.
The project supported by Bank South Pacific Samoa will help Fiamalamalama towards one of its key objectives of empowering students to realise their potential and make decisions for themselves.
BSP’s Country Head, Taitu’uga Maryann Lameko-Vaai reiterated the bank’s commitment to supporting the Samoan Community.
“BSP recognises the hard work and effort by those who run Aoga Fiamalamalama; and we are happy to offer financial support toward this project;
“We do hope that our modest donation will go a long way for them.”
“We respect and value the communities that we operate in and we want to grow together with the community by giving back to them through projects that are significant to their development,” she added.
Sharon Shuren, Principal of Aoga Fiamalamalama expressed her gratitude and thanked the Country Head of BSP for the financial support which will assist with their fundraising activities to build a workshop for the students.
BSP continues to extend its helping hand in any way in order to help grow with the Samoan community.
