We have initiated the construction project to support the local community by sheltering those in need and start reconstructing of what has been lost during the cyclone disaster. This project is based in greater Navua, Pacific Harbour 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 an average, you will be working for about 6 hours in a day on the project.
