This program can vary and include construction & renovation, school rebuilding and cyclone rebuilding.  Work along side local tradesman and help to refurbish worn down community structures or build new structures. No specialist skills are required, however tradespeople of all types (carpentry, plumbing, building, laborers, electricians etc) are in high demand!  

In many areas of Fiji, thousands of families live in inadequate accommodation and children attend school in crumbling buildings. Our construction project allows them to move to new, better quality homes and for the children to receive an education in secure, new classrooms. Through the help from international volunteers, we help local groups to re-build and beautify community structures providing positive energy and vibrancy for the locals.    

Developing infrastructure for the local community is an amazing way to give back to the Fiji locals directly benefiting them and improving their quality of life.  Volunteers will mainly assist in renovating parks, playgrounds, classrooms, kindergartens and other community centres with some supervision and assistance of local tradesmen.


  • Why do we need you in Fiji?
    • Approx 34% of the population in Fiji live below the poverty line
    • Rates for education and literacy are low, making it hard for many local people to find skilled work
    • Lack of adamant nutrition is prominant in Fiji, increased by the cheap imported food available, leading to obesity problems, as well as problems such as type 2 diabetes & micronutrient deficiencies
    • Malnutrition is also seen in Fiji, particually with the under 5's, showing signs such as stunted growth and wasting (loosing muscle mass)
