Classroom Grants

Offering teachers grants of up to FJ $5,000.

Seeing students thrive through the guidance of their educators is why the Fiji Water Foundation invests in programmes that bring opportunities directly to classrooms. This grant allows any teacher, from those in the country’s busy capital of Suva to the hardest-to-reach outer islands, to apply for funding for their classroom.
