Bring all your creative elegance to renew and build beautiful structures for children and the local communities which suffered as a recent of the recent cyclone disaster.

This is a great project to keep you active, fit, and creative. Help to renew and rebuild beautiful structures for children and the local communities which suffered as a recent of the recent cyclone disaster.

You'll take part in construction and renovation projects to help develop infrastructures for the local community and also for the school children. You'll help to renovate or build parks, playgrounds, classrooms, kindergartens and more, so join us on this beautiful island and help to make a community happy!


This Construction project was initiated to help the local community by sheltering those in need and to start reconstructing and repairing what was lost during the cyclone disaster. Your work here is very worthwhile and much appreciated!

This project is based in Sigatoka area, and is a fantastic opportunity to provide tangible benefits and assistance to the local community in general, and schools in particular. Bring out your carpentry skills and participate along with the local community in the construction project.

In addition to the basic project, you may also take part with landscaping the surrounding area, painting local schools, and renovating classrooms.

Many of the schools we work with do not have the funding to renovate their classrooms or build libraries and resource centres, and this is where you can participate. In the past, we even built a library for village school.

In many areas of Fiji, thousands of families live in inadequate accommodation and children attend school in crumbling buildings. Our construction project allows them to move to new, better quality homes and for the children to receive an education in secure, new classrooms.

On average, you'll work for about 6 hours a day on the project.


On Monday, you will start planning the project with the coordinator assigned to you, after having breakfast. Once you plan the project and receive the relevant information, you can have lunch and then leave to work at the community location. Once your work for the day is complete, you can then return to the Centre and attend a meeting where you can provide feedback regarding the first day at your placement.

Your day will begin a bit early. You will be taken to our project site and assigned with particular tasks for the day. A coordinator will be around you during the project. After lunch, you will work at the community location where you will continue to do construction and renovation activities.

The work plan will be confirmed again every Friday. The program can be changed depending on requirements and local conditions. Your weekends and evenings are free, leaving you time for relaxing, travelling and sightseeing.


Your accommodation will be in a pleasant and cosy volunteer centre, with other volunteers, all contributing to keeping the home neat and tidy. You'll share a dorm-style room with it's own bathroom. There is Wi-Fi on site, so you'll be able to keep up with emails with friends and family back home.

FOOD: During the week you will be provided with three meals a day, and over weekends 2 meals a day. These will consist of traditional Fijian style dishes.

If you'd like more information about this or any of our projects, please email or call us! If you'd like to apply for this project, please go to our website and complete the application form. As soon as we receive it, we'll liaise with you and then start making your travel adventure happen.
