Serve Fiji Foundation Launch July 2010
We are a young and determined not-for-profit association made up of a group of ex-students and teachers of Swami Vivekananda College (SVC), devotees of Ramakrishna Mission and former residents and friends and family of Fiji.
We support the Ramakirishna Mission, Fiji, by donating our time, talents and resources in providing aid to the poor, the distressed, or the underprivileged, and assist underdeveloped communities in Fiji, to improve their quality of life physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Our official launch was held on Saturday 17th July 2010 at 85 Bland St, Ashfield, the former Ramakrishna Mission Ashram, and conducted by Swami Damodaranandaji, a former Fiji Mission swami. In attendance were Swami Tadanandaji from Fiji, and Swami Atmeshanandaji of Sydney also to bless the occasion. Also in attendance were some 40 other members.

Congratulations to all the newly elected members who have the opportunity to serve the community for the next year.
The event, as described by those members who could attend, was very successful.This was organised at very short notice to take advantage of Swami Tadananda’s visit. The suggested name and logo were launched and the objects of the association were discussed. Swami Tadanandaji described developments and projects at the SVC. Donations were made and everyone enjoyed refreshments with the swamis after the formal launch.
A very big thank you to all members of our community who came forward to assist in the preparation for this major event at such short notice. It was heart-warming to see the passion and drive by many members of our society in making this event a success
