QAMEA RESORT & SPA - DONATION TO LOCAL SCHOOL
Posted: Wednesday 12 June, 2002


Qamea Resort & Spa – Qamea Island, is proud to announce the donation of a Computer Learning Centre and over 2,000 library books to the Naiviivi Public School on Qamea Island.  On 14 January 2002 Naviivi Village was devastated by Cyclone Ami, the worse to hit the village in a generation.  With sustained winds in excess of 250 kilometers/hour, over half of the village homes were destroyed, as well as a church, community centre, and the school’s library.

Today’s donation includes the construction of a separate annex to the school for the Computer Learning Centre to house 3 personal computers, 2 printers, a fax machine, and a photocopier.  The Centre will be powered by a new electrical generator, also part of the donation.  Former Microsoft executive and co-owner of Qamea Resort & Spa has also undertaken to provide both technical and training assistance.  The Computer Learning Centre will provide the children of Qamea Island for the very first time with access to technology.

With the loss of the library in the cyclone, the resort also donated over 2,000 school books to the newly constructed library, collected from former guests and friends in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States.

“We are very excited about the possibilities that technology and books can offer the children of Qamea Island,” stated co-owner Bryce Earwaker.  “The donation today underscores our commitment to the people of Qamea Island, and is only a small token to show our appreciation for the warm welcome that the villagers have offered us in our new home,” said Earwaker.
