The boat was to ease the daily travel of mainly pupils and teachers of the school resident in neighbouring littoral communities and Islands including Kporkporkedzi, Dzaflagbe, Anyanui and Agorkedzi.

Ms Anne Grethe Scharbach, the Foundation President, announced that the Foundation would be adopting 10 pupils of the school for their education beside, paying bills for the registration of all the pupils of the school under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

Ms Sharbach further announced that the Foundation would mobilize funds back home to help uplift standard of life at Fuveme, which is predominantly a fishing community.
