We want rural communities to have the same access to employability and career opportunities as those in Fiji’s major towns. This can help inspire new economic development in these rural settings.
We support Fijians in creating their own solutions to challenges they face, in a commercially viable setting. Through education, awareness and hands-on support, our volunteers can help empower Fijian youth to take control of their futures.
Bula Batiki is a great example of a social enterprise that is helping create jobs and opportunities for rural communities in Fiji.
It illustrates that there is so much opportunity for Fiji to innovate and create businesses and organisations that can have a global impact.
Helping diversify Fiji’s economy and create new job opportunities will help us achieve clear aims from Fiji’s National Development Plan.
Experiencing the passion that Fijian’s have for their own cultural roots, I felt that the more you got involved with cultural activities the more you get out of the experience itself. I also loved getting involved with Sport in Fiji, sports like Rugby surrounds Fiji like another language to Fijian’s so to have the freedom to simply join in after school days was brilliant. My biggest highlights was growing the bond that I had with my Fijian family over the course of project, when you spend so much time with certain people you only realise towards the end of project how special bonds become and I believe everyone should have the opportunity to have that experience.
Volunteering in Fiji with Think Pacific last summer was the best decision I’ve ever made. Right from the start think Pacific were so supportive & I could not have asked for anything more. You become fully immersed in a Fijian village with a family that are so welcoming and cannot do enough for you.
