S.S.A.B. General Manager Fiti Leung Wai and S.V.S.G representative Papali'i Tusimona Tinai.

Three organisations are the recipients of books and a cheque of $7,000 each funded from the proceeds collected during the Literacy Week.

The Samoa Victim Support Group’s House of Hope, Sei Oriana Trust and the Nelson Memorial Library benefitted from the money collected during a golf tournament, where a brand new Ford Ranger was up for grabs.
Samoa Stationery and Books (SSAB) General Manager, Fiti Leung Wai, presented the gifts during a gathering at the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture’s conference room on Friday.
The Ministry and S.S.A.B had joined forces to promote the annual celebration.
In handing over the money, Mrs. Leung Wai said her company hopes the money would help to develop and nurture future leaders of Samoa.

“Our main goal is to help with the future of Samoa’s children,” she said.
“We hope the money will be used wisely and we hope and look forward to having future professors for Samoa (who are nurtured through this).”
Fuimaono Naoia Schuster, of Sei Oriana Trust, Papali’i Tusimona Tinai, from S.V.S.G and Fepulea’i Fa’ataui Solofuti, on behalf of the Nelson Library, received the gifts.
The members thanked S.S.A.B and M.E.S.C for their hard work in initiating the Literacy week and in doing so, ensuring that the children of Samoa are given every opportunity available to read.
This year’s Literacy Week was guided by the theme “Leaders are Readers”.
Acting Chief Executive Officer of MESC, Leota Velma Galuvao thanked S.S.A.B for their support. She stressed that children must be the priority and they should be encouraged to be in school where they can get an education.
