Letter of appreciation for the donation of shoes

One of the school OHS requirements was for the children to wear shoes at all times but due to financial commitments of the villagers and the remoteness of the community, this requirement has not been fulfilled until now. On behalf of the children and the staff, I would like to say a big vinaka vakalevu for the kind donation

Yours faithfully,
V.K Cokanasiga.

Head Teacher.

Order of Malta

Katalyst would like to thank the Order of Malta for enabling us to obtain the coats they had specifically designed for the homeless. George has successfully distributed the coats through the soup van to the regular users of the service. They have been received with appreciation from those doing it tough. The Order of Malta has also generously allowed us to put in an order for coats for Winter 2017. We would like to sincerely thank them for giving us the opportunity to bring a little more comfort and hope into the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.


LFA First Response

“The Katalyst Foundation would like to thank LFA First Response for the help and ongoing support towards our Rebuild Fiji campaign. In particular with the Nabouwalu Hospital, Bua Province, Fiji. Their generosity is greatly appreciated as is their expert advice in helping us refurbish the hospital.”


Balwyn Rotary

Katalyst Foundation are extremely grateful to the Balwyn Rotary Club for the amazing gift of A$ 30,000 towards the Immaculate Conception Kindergarten in Solevu. Not only is this a much needed early learning facility but will also serve as an evacuation centre during tropical cyclones. This project will make a huge difference to people’s lives. We cannot thank the Balwyn Rotary Club enough for their generosity in supporting this project.
