Each year, many of the people who join us in Tonga bring along school supplies, which we arrange to be distributed to schools on the outer islands.
School supplies and reading glasses donated by our friends
It's not much, but every little bit helps, especially in remote locations.
Most of us who live in cities take things like pencils and erasers for granted, but out here, they're not necessarily so easy to come by (especially cute bunny pencils).
Also, thanks to Serene, Rachel and May from Singapore, this year we have a substantial supply of reading glasses to distribute, which will hopefully come in handy for people who are a bit older and need some help reading fine print.
