Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Working with the community and local nurses in Fiji, assist in collecting data about the various obstacles facing its members, while running local public health workshops in the region.

Participants work with the official government utilizing health materials and resources to create interactive workshops in collaboration with recognised local authorities. You will also assist by creating supporting resources, and conducting supplementary research to assist the district nurse to collate information about individual villages, with a focus on diagnosing problem areas and monitoring recurring ailments. 

Volunteers can also look forward to interacting and making lifelong friends, visit the idyllic traditional Fijian villages and be immersed in the Fijian way of life.

Increasing Employability: Pre Departure Program Training:

Our programs are not only life-changing experiences but are also designed to help participants increase their employability. We have developed a curriculum to be completed prior to arrival in the country in order to ensure that more time is dedicated to program work once you commence your volunteer program. 


Eight weeks prior to your start date, you will complete the following online courses in preparation for your in-country program:

PRE-DEPARTURE ORIENTATION (1 hour)

PROGRAM SPECIFIC TRAINING (1 - 5 hours)

OPTIONAL: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COURSE (10 - 15 hours)


In order to obtain a certificate for the Community Development course which is endorsed by the University of Richmond and UNC Charlotte, you will need to complete quizzes & assignments and will be given 4 weeks post program to submit your work. 


If you are looking to travel in less than 8 weeks from now, you will still complete the course however this will be done in country and all content will need to be downloaded before arrival. 


Health & Hygiene:

The work we contribute to across the globe remains important and new measures allow our participants to continue to join our programs and continue impacting positively on their world and the communities we work with. Changes to our existing protocols have been made by our health and hygiene team to strengthen our health and hygiene protocols and ensure that international standard safeguards are in place to protect our participants, staff and host communities. Please inquire for more information on the protocols. 

Tagesablauf

First Week: 


- Saturday: Welcome and Cultural Orientation in Nadi. Followed by arrival Health & Safety briefing before beginning your journey to Dawasamu. On arrival you will be given a base tour before settling into your new home. In the evening you will experience a traditional Sevusevu (welcome ceremony) and meet the members of the village who you will be working closely with and your family who will help you settle in to the Fijian lifestyle.

- Sunday: On Sunday you will go to Church as part of your introduction to the village way of life. It is a fantastic opportunity to experience another culture and integrate yourself into the village. After church, you will have time to eat lunch and spend the afternoon getting to know your Fijian family. 

- Arrival Monday: This morning will begin with a short, introductory meeting to outline and explain your first project that you will begin working on today, as well as detailing upcoming projects that you will be a part of during your time in Dawasamu. Whilst volunteering on the Expedition program you will spend time working on a variety of projects in different villages and schools, staff having assessed the current needs of the community. The project leader will go over the plan and discuss the goals for the upcoming week. Further training on specific tasks will be given when required but always before volunteers are asked to carry out a task. Project work will usually begin, slightly later, at 9am on this first day. 

- Rest of the Week: Your working day will begin at 8am and the rest of the week will be shaped by the project work undertaken so far. Your tasks may include planning of lessons, facilitating workshops, the creation of new workshops and other tasks in support of the program initiatives such as assisting with implementation of the waste management programme. GVI aim to utilise any skills that volunteers have, if you think you could bring something new to our community project please let us know! Typically, you will be visiting villages anywhere from a 5 minute to 20 minute drive away from our base and carrying out our initiatives within the community there. Each week there will be different goals determined by the specific needs of the community at that time In the evenings, you can socialize with the rest of the GVI team and the community, as well as assisting with cooking and household duties. 

- Weekends: Free time! You can visit the capital city of Suva, visit Island resorts, snorkel, hike, go dolphin watching or just relax on the beach.

Freizeitaktivitäten

In your down time you will be free to travel in the local area and you will be free on the weekends. In this time you could do day trips such as dolphin watching, visiting other islands, scuba diving, or relaxing in a near by resort. After your program there are countless attractions that can be reached after a day or two of travelling.
You could travel to the capital city of Suva, take a ferry to Taveuni - 'the garden of Fiji' or explore the interior of VitiLevu– the possibilities are endless!
