Description

Fiji is a stunning place to spend some time volunteering abroad. Our volunteer projects in Fiji are a world away from the luxurious tourist resorts that form many people’s perceptions of the islands. Our projects are available for anyone interested in volunteering abroad –whether you’re on a gap year, career break, or as summer experience during semester breaks.

Our projects in Fiji are located in and around the town of Nadi on the west coast of the island and in Suva on the east coast. Many travelers arrive at Nadi’s international airport before either flying or catching a boat straight to their island paradise. However, it is the poorer areas of Fiji’s larger towns that are most in need of our volunteer’s help.

As a volunteers with Projects Abroad is Fiji you can participate in a variety of projects such as Care, Teaching, Medicine & Healthcare, Conservation & Environment, Village Culture & Community, and 2-Week High School Specials.

Highlights

Volunteers in Fiji are spoiled when it comes to travel opportunities in the South Pacific. You can travel around the islands either during the weekends or after finishing your volunteering project. The island of Viti Levu where Projects Abroad is based is well worth exploring during weekends with excellent trekking in the dramatic highland interior, remote villages and colorful festivals that will introduce you to the music and customs of traditional Fijian life.

Explore a little further and join the hunt for the perfect beach. The South West of Viti Levu boasts the best of the islands beaches with incredible scuba diving in the reefs at Nananu-i-Ra or at the Beqa lagoon. Or take a boat island hopping through the Mamanucas island chain, north west of Nadi for the ultimate in beach relaxation. It would take you months to explore all the islands, but travel through the archipelago has never been more accessible even for those on smaller budgets. So, if you have the time, pack a hammock and sarong and head for paradise!
