Investing in Fijian Communities

Crucial to our projects and wider mission, is that your fee funds the year-round work of our registered Fijian charity, Think Pacific Foundation (FJ989).Β  Our charity focuses upon capacity building and training of local people, which leads to sustainable outcomes of the Fiji National Development Plan.Β  This includes providing training, funding internships, supporting local empowerment and job creation for Fijian youths and furthering advocacy surrounding messages of public health, mental health, sports development and enterprise at rural community level.Β  We believe that the most effective and sustainable outcomes can only be achieved by investing in the skills, knowledge and personal development of local people, especially youths, so they may contribute effectively to local decision making processes and be the leaders of change in their communities.
