Fuel For Schools
PVW Partners is proud to be a Founding corporate sponsor of Fuel for Schools. Recognising that the long-term benefits of an education can determine the quality of an individual’s life and provides a foundation for equity in society, the charity started to fill a void within the community.
The program encourages children to attend school and helps support children avoid the embarrassment of not having any food. The added benefit to the community is that children are attending school and not wandering the streets causing issues.
Fuelling the Future Program
Paula, Demelza and Paddy started the charity by donating and delivering school back packs with all the essentials students need to commence learning. In 2015 they started with 7 school bags, last school year 2022 they donated 380 and this year they are targeting 500! What an incredible goal.
Growing from 7 to over 40 schools within the region covering Townsville, Ingham and the Burdekin, the charity program also focuses on helping kids start their day right by providing a nutritional breakfast to assist with cognitive function and improve their wellbeing. Thousands of breakfasts are offered to children and has proven to increase attendance.
There has been massive recognition of the impact of this from principals, teachers and the school community. School attendance is up, behaviour has improved and so have the grades.
