We are incredibly excited that through our Virtual Internship program we have been able to work with passionate individuals from all over the world. We’ve connected interns from every continent with each other and with organisations in Fiji to support their development 🌏
As well as expanding our vuvale (family) we’ve also been extending our partnerships with organisations in Fiji and with universities around the world. Through networking and partner referrals we’ve partnered with over 80 Fijian organisations for our remote internship. From grassroot NGOs through to Government Ministries – we are so grateful to be working with such a diverse range of partners across a huge range of industries.
Through our volunteering and remote opportunities we’ve partnered with over 70 UK universities, and now that global mobility is stronger than ever, we are thrilled to be making exciting new partnerships with universities around the world.

What skills have our interns gained? Don’t ask us, hear from them…
“One of the highlights of the internship for me was looking into the Fijian culture, so looking into the culture series and experiencing that working from home so it was a really interesting experience. Personally I think my confidence has really increased because I didn’t think I would be able to make this kind of project.”
