“Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh, be swift to love, make haste to be kind!” – Swiss Philosopher, poet and critic Henri-Frederic Amiel (1821-1881)


Headed by Kathryn Rivai, Etania Schools provides education for marginalised, undocumented and stateless children in Sabah, Malaysia.  There are many thousands of children without access to education and Etania provides access to beneficial and relevant learning programmes for these children. 

Hope Learning Centre/Etania School – which was displaced from Penampang, near Kota Kinabalu.    A new area  which needs clearing from vegetation and undergrowth, was found to build a school from scratch for these 260 school going children, with 7 classrooms, toilets and other facilities for both teachers and children.  FRS hopes to start this project soon.


  • FRS assisted with sanitary needs in this school.
