About Help Kiribati Kids Get A TV

Bringin’ a BIG Screen to Kiribati

Brady House, Rosebank College is fundraising for the Kids of Kiribati. They need a big screen TV or projector for their classroom. It is going to be used for learning (and for a bit of fun!).

A shared screen at the front of a classroom will allow teachers to project slides, photographs and videos, introducing students to a vast new world beyond the sandy shores of Kiribati. Teachers can make use of a range of interactive learning resources and engage the children in new and exciting activities.

At our school in Sydney we take our technology for granted, but every student agreed, learning is better with our big screens!

Our target is set at $3000. If we exceed all expectations then there are many other resources we can buy and send to the Good Samaritan Sisters on Kiribati. Your money will go a long way and to a very worthy cause.

Thank you for your support and helping Brady bring a BIG screen to Kiribati!

Additional Background

The Republic of Kiribati is situated on the Equator and consists of three clusters of islands, spread across 3.5 million kilometres of ocean. The United Nations (UN) lists Kiribati as an endangered country because of the dangers it faces from rising seas levels. Other challenges include water contamination, declining fish stocks and overcrowding. In Abaokoro, a 2-hour canoe ride from the capital of Kiribati, Sisters of the Good Samaritan run an Early Learning Centre for children from local villages. This year, through the charitable work of The Good Sams a new school building is under construction in Abaokoro. With all funds exhausted, the Sisters need some extra help to fit out the new building with furniture and learning resources .

About Good Sams

The Sisters of the Good Samaritan (known affectionately as the Good Sams) were Australia’s first ‘home grown’ order of religious women, established in Sydney in 1857 by Archbishop Bede Polding. The Sisters take their name and inspiration from the Parable of the Good Samaritan. They share a commitment to be ‘neighbour’ to those in need, with a special focus on assisting vulnerable women and children.

The Sisters’ first home in Pitt Street Sydney was demolished in 1901 to make way for the construction of Sydney’s Central Railway Station. Historic Toxteth House at Glebe Point became their new residence. Now, after more 150 years serving the poor and needy, the Sisters original mission continues. Working with their partners in ministry, the Sisters bring compassion and justice to an expanding global neighbourhood.
