Share your teaching experience as a qualified teacher or work as a teaching assistant. Volunteer to teach abroad and contribute to the education of Fijian youth.
This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+

The project

This project focuses on teaching children of various age groups in a relaxed and friendly environment. You can experience both rural and urban settings and see much more than any tourist would. The experience and teaching at the different public and private schools across the country varies greatly. You will have the opportunity to expose children to a different culture and to share teaching methods and techniques with the other teachers. A teaching background is not required as you will be assisting the regular school teacher. You will receive support and guidance, if needed, from our experienced teachers at the Teaching center. If you are an experienced teacher, you will have the freedom to be creative and design your own lesson plans.
You can make a significant and worthwhile contribution to the education of Fijian youth, all while experience this little slice of paradise.

The location

Fiji, an archipelago in the South Pacific comprised of 333 beautiful islands, is famous for its blue lagoons and sandy beaches. Fiji’s inhabitants among which are Indians, Europeans, Chinese and other Pacific islanders, live together peacefully while preserving their culture and identity. The majority of Fijian population inhabits the two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Your first week will be an introductory experience to the island, this is compulsory for all trips to Fiji, and is the best way to get to know the people, culture and nature before starting your volunteer experience.

Once you start volunteering, you will be working Monday to Friday teaching in local primary schools. During the weekdays you will focus on planning lessons, doing crafts, leading computer classes, English language classes, conversations, exams and dynamic activities. You also have an option to focus on Physical education, music, arts and crafts or other areas in which you have previous expertise or skills. Please note that you will spend part of your day in a formal teaching setting, which requires you to follow the Fijian Ministry of Education formal dress code.

If you are joining the project with no prior teaching experience you will follow a customized timetable as an assistant to the local teacher.


Suva, the capital of Fiji and its most cosmopolitan city, is located on the southeast coast of Viti Levu. Built on the peninsula, Suva is a harbour city with approximately 86,000 inhabitants. With its unique combination of nature and culture, Suva is a great place to explore nature as well as Fijian arts, rituals and festivals.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Nadi International Airport
We will pick you up at Nadi International Airport. 

You need to arrive on the Sunday before your start date (each Monday) to be picked up from the airport. If you need to arrive earlier or later, additional fees will apply. Check with us before booking any flights.


Accommodation is provided in our centre in Suva. The rooms are dorm-style with 4-6 people per room and a shared bathroom with hot water. All rooms are equipped with wall fans to keep cool. There are refrigerators available for use by participants. Wi-fi is also available; however, the quality may not be as good as you expect and it may be slow or irregular at times. During your stay, you are expected to be environmentally aware and use all resources with restraint including water, paper and electricity. You are responsible for cleaning up after yourself and contributing to keeping the accommodation neat and tidy.

There are many ATMs 5-10 minutes away from the Suva House centre. The local supermarket is 5 minutes away and you can buy a personal SIM card at the local shop. Suva is 20 minutes away by car/bus from the centre. There are multiple health and medical centres within a 20 minutes car ride radius from the centre.

Private rooms are available for an additional £100(please ask for $ equivalent) per week.

Eten & Drank
Three meals are served on weekdays and two meals on the weekends. Breakfast is western style and dinners consist of traditional Fijian meals.
Internet toegang
Makkelijke toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Nadi International Airport (NAN) in Nadi. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Fiji.
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Fiji biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Fiji dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Fiji.
