Education & Advocacy
Our belief in the value of education and learning is the key to our support and assistance. Twice a week you will conduct homework clubs, supporting the children with their school work in English, Maths and Reading. Building strong and compassionate relationships with young people is the heart of what we do, and we place a high value on fostering a strong homework routine. The sessions provide the children with invaluable opportunities to increase their social confidence, as they mix with a different range of people whilst being exposed to new experiences and teaching methods. Whilst supporting and teaching the children, you will quickly realise that you stand to learn much, much more than your students.Choose Your Expedition

This summer I taught students to read and coached sports each day. We caught fish, cooked them on an open fire and picked fresh lemons, bananas and coconuts. We travelled by boat each day and saw a Pacific sunset every evening and that’s not even all! Thank you Think Pacific for an invaluable experience.
A truly incredible, heartwarming and rewarding experience. The Fijian family I stayed with were so welcoming and friendly, allowing me to experience the Fijian way of life from cooking to traditional crafts and even coconut husking! The TP leaders live in the same village as you which is great as support is there 24/7, one of several reasons why I chose to go with TP. The project gave us the opportunity to teach in two local primary schools across various year groups. I especially enjoyed teaching lacrosse as this was a completely new and exciting sport for the children and am so grateful for TP arranging lacrosse sticks to be sent all the way to Fiji so I could do this! I wish I could do the project all over again.
The country of Fiji itself is so beautiful and spending time in the village on project is even more so. The families are amazing and take you in as one of their own. You get to experience their ways of living, including their culture, their food, you can experience church services with them too which is probably one of the most amazing experiences in the whole project. The children are lovely and are so excited to have you there with them that they get stuck into activities with you too. My time in the village was definitely something I will never forget, as you can see how what you do on project will change the lives of the children for the better. The support of group leaders really help you feel comfortable and can get involved in project knowing they are there if you need anything at all. This really was an eye opening experience!
Using materials and resources provided by our government partners, you and Fijian Youth Group members will lead fun and interactive sessions, for the local children and teenagers around relevant social issues. The sessions are designed so that young Fijians are equipped to make wise life choices around topics such as; health and hygiene, environmental awareness, recycling projects and the dangers of tobacco, drugs and alcohol. The collaboration between yourself and the village youth group is integral to the success and sustainability of this initiative.
We aim to make ‘Homework club’ enjoyable by delivering our sessions through fun, interactive games. Developing the basics of the English language is where we make the biggest impact therefore the club aims to support and develop these skills through carefully designed activities and storytelling. We encourage all children to be themselves and dive into their own imagination.
We provide a space that is welcoming and conducive for learning as we work towards establishing a strong homework routine. Our homework support is based on creating a fun, interactive environment where young people look to find the answers for themselves whilst developing their basic skills.
