Description

Volunteers will live and work in a wonderful beach location and travel to indigenous communities to help improve the infrastructure that supports village life. Volunteers will assess the specific needs of each village, evaluating potential development solutions such as improving water security, implementing sustainable power, kindergarten and primary school support and providing environmental education. This exciting program will enable volunteers to have an important role in the development of sustainable infrastructure across 27 villages. Volunteers will become immersed in Fijian culture and have the option to snorkel, dive and explore other island chains during their free time on the weekends.
