Kalapu Peteli donates $1000 for Pea Primary School

A Kalapu Kava Tonga (Kava Tonga club) in Wellington, New Zealand  has raised $1,000 to help fund renovation of a school house at the village of Pea on the mainland of Tongatapu, Tonga Islands.

The fundraising on June 29 was organised by members of the Kalapu Peteli of Wellington led by Moana Ma’ake and the President, Feleti Foliaki.

Tu’ikolongahau Toumua from the club said the money would help repair and paint a school house  for a Peace Corps volunteer who has offered to work for the school.

This is not the first time the club donated for the Pea Primary School. Last year, they sent sport gears, computers including a trophy for the captain of the school.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
