  Meet Jone! Kids with sponsors
Kids waiting for sponsors


Jone is a 12 year old boy.

Along with his mother and 3 other children in the family, Jone became homeless after the recent tragic death of his father. 

The family is currently sheltering in a run down dwelling and rely on neighbours for food. 

Jone is a delightful boy who is managing to cope despite the crippling circumstances. 

Fiji Kids was contacted by the school Head Mistress desperate to find a way to support this very vulnerable family. 

The day we visited, Jone he was desolate after the small amount of crops the family had grown for food had been stolen.  What a desperately sad situation.

Jone enjoys attending school and his favourite subject is all subjects.

When he is not at school he loves to play rugby.

Jone travels to school each day on foot, walking around 1km each way.

When he grows up, Jone wants to be a pilot.

Teacher’s comments:

This boy deserves to be sponsored.  He is an above average student and keen to learn at school. 

His poor attendance is due to his family situation where he often has to care for his younger siblings.
