As part of its corporate social responsibility programme, Vanuatu’s fintech leader Titan FX recently organized a trip to the Banks Islands to distribute school supplies to 189 children and their teachers. This support is crucial for providing equal opportunity for students in this remote area of the country.
On August 27, Titan FX business analyst, Aurellia Karie went to Losalava Primary School, on the island of Gaua, to meet its team of teachers and support staff. With at least 40 students in each class, they need all the help they can get in transmitting their knowledge and maximizing future opportunities for the children on the island.
Headmistress Edith Tasso, who has the distinction of being the only female in this role on the island, welcomed the visitors and conveyed her gratitude to Karie upon receiving Titan FX’s gift. She stressed that the remoteness of the island often makes it difficult to procure all of the supplies needed to teach the children adequately.
Like many of Titan FX’s other community initiatives, support for education throughout the country serves its long-term vision of ensuring the diversification and growth of Vanuatu’s economy.
“Improving access to knowledge at an early age is key to filling the gaps in Vanuatu’s workforce as new industries develop on our shores,” said Karie. “We want future generations of Ni-Vanuatu to become high-skilled talents and take the lead not only in fintech, but in other knowledge industries of the 21st century. And that starts on the benches of our primary schools.”
