FIJI: Teach Disadvantaged Children in Suva

Company : Travellers Worldwide
Location : Suva
Duration: 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 500 to 2000 £ Pound (UK)

Live in the beautiful Island town of Suva in Fiji and teach children of various age groups. You'll make a very significant and worthwhile contribution.

The children in Fiji are in desperate need of experienced teachers and enthusiastic non-qualified volunteers. Both can make a very significant and worthwhile contribution.

Volunteers with teaching experience will have the freedom to be creative and design their own lesson plans, a refreshing change for some of our more mature participants, who tell us it takes them back to the “good old days.”

Those with less or no experience will get support and guidance from our Teaching Centre, a relaxed environment matching the Fijian way of doing things, but with up-to date teaching methods from experienced teachers.

You should love children and understand their behavior, as you will be surrounded with loads of them every day and their friendliness can sometimes become over-exuberant!

Sample Schedule of Monday to Friday Program Activities:

  • Planning lessons
  • Doing and teaching crafts
  • Computer class
  • Teaching through Conversation
  • English language teaching
  • Level exams
  • Dynamic activities

You'll experience life in both rural and urban areas, which is quite different from the average journey followed by a tourist. Most locals on Fiji can’t afford to travel, and in the villages there is little chance of contact with the outside world. Your teaching enables students to form relationships with someone from another culture, and the teachers can learn different teaching methods and techniques. Mainly, you will assist the regular school teacher, so you do not need to have any teaching background.


You'll live in the volunteer house on Suva and you'll share a bedroom with around 4 other volunteers. Everything and everyone is very friendly! Wifi is available in the public areas.


FOOD: At the Centre you will be provided with three meals a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week, and breakfast and dinner at weekends.

Breakfast is Western style and lunch and dinner are typical Fijian style.
