    To continue with Seru’s contributions to his village, a Fundraiser was held on March 2015 in Hong Kong to build a kindergarten in Seru’s home village as the closest was over 1 hour on foot. The Ministry of Education in Fiji supported the initiative and his partner Susan worked alongside the Ministry to complete Seru’s dream project.

    Further to Seru’s passing, the Discovery Bay Pirates in Hong Kong where Seru was Head Coach/Player 2014-15, set up The Seru Rabeni Fund with 3 major aims:

    1. To continue supporting the fundraising activities in Seru’s home village, Nasolo on the island of Vanua Levu started by Seru in 2009. The first project is now complete further to building and opening the Seru Rabeni Memorial Kindergarten on 6th August 2018 donated by the Seru Ruben Fund with the support of the Fiji Ministry of Education.
    2. Through the Rabeni Sevens annual rugby tournament hosted in Nasolo, the Fund will also continue to build an education and rugby pathway offering Fijian youth opportunities overseas to change their lives for a better future. Seru kickstarted the following initiatives taking on obligations, financial and otherwise, to support others at the expense of himself and his family
      • Founded and personally funded the Nasolo Young Boys Sevens team
      • Academy Placements  for DB Pirates outstanding U19 players in 2015 with Otago Highlanders & Canterbury in New Zealand and the Sharks in South Africa.
    3. Allocate a portion of monies raised to provide a similar function to an Accumulation & Maintenance Trust for Seru and Susan's daughter Ayami's future education or needs.

    Doing Business Doing Good. Sarah Garner, founder of Retykle, will speak about how to use your business to make a positive impact.

    Retykle is the Asia’s leading online consignment platform for buying and selling secondhand designer children’s clothes and accessories. It is an innovative circular retail platform which benefits the lives of parents, the community and the environment by keeping kids clothing in circulation and out of landfill for as long as possible.

    The retail industry is the second most polluting industry in the world. Creating a circular retail model extends the longevity of products and endeavours to do away with the concept of wardrobe waste all together. The concept and principles of circularity can be applied to almost any consumer product. Learn how to apply the principles to your business. 

     ___________________________________________

    Under the guidance of T8 Consulting and in in conjunction with AroundDB the Networking breakfast is set to become a standing monthly fixture in the DB calendar (first Thursday of the month excl. Jan).  An ideal opportunity to meet local service providers and customers, ask questions about getting started or growing your business, and get advice from those who have gone before.

    By attending you will get the opportunity to have a one minute introduction to share what you or your company can offer, network with like minded people and ask questions on where you might need help or perhaps share something that you have just learnt that you had wished someone had told you sooner.

    The Back to School Fair for the DB community has been running for 9 years and there are a few changes.

    The Fair’s new name will now be known as After-School and Wellness Fair and will be held at ZAKS this year to increase foot traffic. 

    Proceeds will still benefit the DB community by having DC, DBIS and Wai Lun choose students to receive a scholarship to go through an Emergency First Aid Course. 


    The mission of the fair is to be at the beginning of school time so parents, new members in the community, and current residents can see what DB has to offer for kids activities, wellness and other services in one location . We market the event via school newsletters, bus stop flyers, forums, Around DB and word of mouth. We also encourage our vendors to email their contacts as well.

    There is limited space available at ZAKS with tables being smaller than at DBIS  therefore there will be no space this time for banners. No Food or Drinks products can be sold at this event .  

    Each table will look like this below and you are encouraged to bring a table cloth and flyers to hand out.
