Three students from Tonga were among a group of university students who met with Pacific
Cooperation Foundation chair John Fiso and PCF Partnerships and Special Projects Officer Laree Taula earlier this month.

The students are part of the 2020/2021 intake for the PCF New Zealand Scholarship Internship programme which will officially launch on Friday 13 November.

The students are all studying at Victoria University in Wellington and were attending their internship induction.

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.
