OTA Disability School

In 2017/2018 the Akanesi Mataitonga Trust helped the OTA Centre in Nuku’alofa (Ofa Tui Amanaki meaning Love, Faith & Hope) which is a school that cares for children and young adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. This project saw our Trustee Frazer walking 1000km around the four main islands of Tonga – Tongatapu, ‘Eua, Ha’apai and Vava’u. The funds raised from Frazer’s sponsored walk enabled us to build the centre a specially adapted playground that the OTA students can use safely and also donated a 40ft container filled with food, furniture and learning materials, teacher aids, school uniforms, shoes and school bags, mobility aids, kitchen supplies and more!

Our friends at Tutu on the beach created a short video about this project, which you can view using the link below:
