Location: Nadi, Fiji

Trip cost:

$3,600 (including airfare)

Dates Available:

June 14th-27th

Travel to the breathtaking, white sandy beaches of Fiji, surrounded by turquoise water with colorful fish below the surface. Fiji is filled with the kindest people on earth. In Fiji, you'll be considered family as you serve alongside them in their villages. They'll show you how to cook food in the ground, make clothes out of coconut husk, teach you to play rugby, and best of all, watch them dance with fire! Become a local by learning new Fijian words like "Bula" (hello), and "Vinaka vakalevu" (thank you very much). Fiji is made up of 333 islands and islets, and filled with exotic rain forests, coral gardens, and beautiful waterfalls!

Project: Inside Out Learning

"Let's change the world one child at a time!"

Our Fiji project consists of teaching a faith-inspired learning style to the health promoting schools surrounding Nadi, Fiji. This learning style is called "Inside Out Learning". As the leading cause of death in Fiji is obesity, we are excited to help implement health programs that focus on problem-solving skills and creative thinking! Each volunteer will be trained in the IOL methodology before their trip. This methodology will not only help the children of Fiji, but the volunteers themselves will develop character strengths and gain entrepreneurial skills. 

 

Workdays in Fiji will start around 9 am and last until 3 pm. Our volunteers will assist in implementing health programs, planting vegetable gardens, teaching FUN exercises, and building shelters for local villages using natural resources and creative thinking! Be prepared for lots of playing and running around with the Fijian children as we help them understand the importance of taking care of their body!

Sightseeing: The Garden of the Sleeping Giant & Island Day Cruise

One of Fiji's most magical forests! 

Have you ever taken a mud bath in a tropical rainforest? The Garden of the Sleeping Giant is Fiji's most magical rainforest. Come relax in therapeutic mud spas surrounded by coral gardens. It's one of the most beautiful places on earth!
