Fundraising for Fiji trip.

I am travelling to Fiji for just over two months this year [from early June to late August] to teach English and Maths to disadvantaged youths in a rural village. I am volunteering with an organisation called 'Think Pacific' [British charity number:1162190] who send like minded individuals out to Fiji each year on similar expeditions.

I aspire to travel to Kadavu in rural Fiji where I will stay in a traditional village (24th June – 20th August) and work with the local schools to help previously identified children develop their English and mathematics skills. As well as helping to rebuild schools which were damaged during Cyclone Winston in February 2016.

I hope to function as someone who can inspire these children to see the benefit of a good education, and hopefully pursue further education in the future.


During my two-month project I will experience tough and challenging conditions as I volunteer to deliver a government backed programme to inspire children living in hardship. I shall also donate vital school and sports development resources to enable our good work to continue long term.

In order to participate I am required to raise around £3000 to cover travel and expenses which will go directly to the children in these villages. I am, of course, hoping to cover a great percentage of this with fundraising from you guys!
