Talalelei Life Future Fund
A charity to honour the generous spirit of Talalelei to fund an otherwise unattainable path to a better life through tertiary scholarshipsAuckland
This October, a young Aucklander holidaying at the Return to Paradise resort at Lefaga in Samoa found himself being swept out to sea by a rip. Our dear friend and husband, brother and son, Talalelei Vou, a porter, driver and Activities Leader at the Return to Paradise Resort as well as a trained lifeguard, swam out immediately with a lifebuoy to assist the guest in trouble.
While the young man’s life was saved, tragically Tala lost his life.
To make a lasting gesture in Tala’s memory, guests at the Resort have established the Talalelei Life Futures Fund. It will raise money to fund tertiary scholarships for students at the school in the Resort and in Tala’s village, allowing Tala’s generous spirit, love of young people and legacy to continue. The Fund will support the top female and male school students to attend university, providing an otherwise unattainable path to a better life for them and their communities.

Use of funds
The Fund will support the top female and male school students from high schools where Tala grew up to attend university, providing an otherwise unattainable path to a better life for them and their communities.
What a successful and busy year it has been for the Talalelei Life Future Fund! This year we granted four scholarship to students from Tala's village and school based in Samoa. This has given students the opportunity to further there education which is the overarching purpose of this charity. In 2020 we aim to increase the amount of scholarships to 6 which will requires additional funding. We are going to continue this givealittle page to allow people access to donate from all around the world. We will continue to update this page to keep everyone updated on the progress of all our students.
Thank you all for your continuous generosity and continuous support.
