ASC has been supporting students at Farkwa Secondary School since 2007 when the Tanzanian Field School first visited it. As of 2012, ASC has provided a portion of a student’s boarding fee through Fostering Futures for Kids in Farkwa (FFKF). The article, Fostering African Futures, from Gippsland Magazine, Winter Edition 2015, provides the background to FFKF’s origin. It describes how friends and family of Rosie Broughton came together to support Farkwa students. Rosie married into a Farkwa family and after living in the village became aware of the challenges faced by those seeking a secondary education. Through FFKF, students are sponsored with a day or boarding scholarship. The majority of sponsors are Australian (living in Gippsland).
