"I believe that Samoa's standards of education needs to improve and so the first two schools that they will visit is Church College Pesega and Samoa College and we are thankful for support from the school principals.

"We hope to meet the Minister of Education, Sports and Culture as well, but we thank the Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi for his support always. 

"We also want to acknowledge our dear friends from St. George, Utah: Founder Jack Rolfe and Co-founder Lexie Rolfe for School of Life Foundation who have chosen Samoa to share their programme and to see how they can assist in areas of education within schools at Samoa," she said.

Faalogo also thanked Mr. and Mrs. Rolfe for their dedication and love for education

"Their mission is to help increase school graduate rates, teach, train, motivate and inspire youths to achieve straight A's in school in the School of Life. 

"May God bless all that are in the good work of service that dedicate their time, resources and passionately motivated striving to make a difference in someone's life to help and uplift their spirit to give them strength to accept and embrace the good and bad that they will experience in life."
