Above is the Exeter Students to Fiji 2017 Team
35 Exeter Students Across 2 Projects Provided Over 5,000 Hours of Educational Support This Summer
Zoe & David were joined by fellow Exeter University students across June & July as members of the Think Pacific Student Global Mobility summer program.
The students arrived armed with passion, energy and enthusiasm to drive youth and sports development aims for the Think Pacific Foundation – in partnership with the Fijian Ministry of Education.
