Being a volunteer on a group trip can make a significant difference in a short timescale. In Fiji, a world-renowned group of islands of sandy beaches and turquoise waters, there is a real need for volunteer help in kindergartens in the poorer districts of the large towns.
As a volunteer group, you will spend the mornings in a kindergarten supporting the teachers with class activities. You will also help with lunch and playtime and basic care of the children. All these children thrive with dedicated care and one-to-one attention so you can have a real enriching experience with them.
In the afternoon you will focus your time on specific projects. This may be re-decorating classroom at the kindergarten or a local care centre. As a group of volunteers, your efforts will be noticeable over your stay and will really make a difference to the children you have come to help.
While you are volunteering in Fiji, you will stay in an apartment or hostel but you'll get a real insight into the island’s culture. Projects Abroad will also arrange a number of excursions and day trips to various places of interest around the island of Viti Levu, where our volunteers are based. Fiji is a fascinating place with a real juxtaposition between the beautiful untouched beaches with thriving tourism, and poor communities struggling to improve their lives.
