What Makes Our Projects in Fiji So Special?

Our projects are based in rural parts of Fiji, a world away from the usual crowds and tourists. The villages and communities you’ll have the privilege of living in are accessible only by Chiefly invitation, which means you can sample a way of life that few people will ever be fortunate enough to see!

Arriving in your Fijian village is the most exciting day of the expedition. Each team visits a different community to complete the project objectives, as requested by the Fijian Government and Provincial Councils. The communities are so incredibly excited about your arrival that the entire village will gather to greet you from the bus and welcome you into their community. By the time you depart from your project, you will feel like you have a second home, a newfound family and a long long list of friends. You’ll be welcomed into the community with the famous Fijian warmth and kindness that is greater than you could imagine.

Our advice is that you immerse yourself in every aspect of Fijian life, embracing and seeing the culture and country through the eyes of the local people. You’ll need to take an active interest in Fijian customs, culture, values and traditions. If you do all this and you throw yourself wholeheartedly into the Fijian village experience, you’ll get so much back and make so many amazing lifelong memories.
