Andrew Afeaki says:
After World War Two Queen Salote wanted to create scholarships to send promising young Tongans offshore to schools, and she was conscious government had very little money. She asked people to raise funds for creating these scholarships. I know my father spent months and months, following the copra buyers around, setting up a little table and asking people who had just got money from their copra, please make a donation to this scholarship the Queen wishes to set up. He worked voluntarily for months to set that up. It’s a type of patriotism, of loyalty. He did that because the Queen wanted it done. He saw as son of the Afeaki it was his duty to do it.
