I'VE HEARD! The names of the FOM 2019 Easter Island Foundation Scholarship Awards!

I'VE HEARD that its time for another reminder of the charitable spirit of the FOM! The local chapters of the FOM hold events throughout the year to raise money for many charities, both local and global. We previously reported that the FOM had raised a record amount of funds through various charitable chapter functions for 2017's donation to the Easter Island Foundation - 2018's donation was right there as well! Those in the FOM know how much planning and work go into these charity events (hint: it's ALOT) but they do it because the funds we send to the EIF for their scholarship fund help the youth of that area to keep and preserve their way of life, while also improving the life condition of those who live there. To us - it's worth the effort. We hope to have a short bio written by each student in a future blog posting, so that we can read their own words about the value of these scholarships to each student and to the island. The Fellows in the FOM should be proud of the good they do when they help these students obtain the knowledge and skills they will need to help the people of Rapa Nui stay prosperous, safe, happy and healthy.

This year the EIF and Island Scholarship Committees awarded eight scholarships to deserving Rapa Nui students using the $15,000.00 that the EIF received from the Fraternal Order of Moai Foundation. Here are the FOM scholarship recipients for 2019:
