Fiji

Fiji’s 333 islands, 4000 square miles of reef and 1500 species of marine animals might be enough to convince anyone to visit the beautiful island nation, but there’s so much more to experience. Visit Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple, the biggest and most colourful temple in the world, trek deep into the dense tropical jungle, enjoy sand-boarding, diving, take a dip in the hot springs, and of course, experience the exceptional warmth and fascinating culture of your hosts by participating in traditional ceremonies and pass around some kava.

Visit this tropical paradise and do something worthwhile at the same time by joining us on a marine conservation, construction or community project. Bula Fiji!

"I just recently returned home from the education project in Fiji. I knew that this was going to be an adventure that I would never forget but what I didn’t know was how it would change my life. Before I left for Fiji I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life, now I have a strong sense of direction. I firmly stand behind GVI and everything it stands for, thank you for this life changing opportunity. I WILL be involved with GVI for many years to come!"

"I learnt how to use a variety of tools, install guttering, mix concrete, build a base, drive a boat (with some help, of course), navigate at night by light of a flashlight, cook with limited foods (world-famous chefs would be envious of our creations with corned beef), adjust to long bouts of quiet, immerse myself into a new group of people, experience homesickness in a new and very unfamiliar environment, and I loved it. Not every moment was perfect and this list is not even remotely extensive, in fact the more I think about it, the more I am certain I could fill a series of notebooks with lessons learnt and favourite memories from my very brief two weeks in my life shared with you all in Fiji, but the experience really changed my life and I have all of you, my fellow volunteers, and my Fijian family to thank for it."

"Of course GVI Thailand is so much more than just a TEFL course. I came here hoping to experience the “real” Thailand and I have not been disappointed. Everyone in town is as eager to say “Hello” to me as I am to say “Sawadee Ka” to them! Every other day we take Thai language lessons, which give us a deeper appreciation for our students efforts to learn English. Every night we eat Thai cuisine prepared by a local resident."

"Being on Alvei for two seasons was a dream come true! You cannot find a more authentic way to live the life of sailor from many centuries ago. Even if sometimes it can be pretty hard, it’s totally worth it and makes it even more real. A great thanks to Evan, the Captain, for letting us share his world!

During my second year, I had the chance to participate in HFJ. I will always cherish those memories of us anchoring in the small islands of Fiji, welcomed by the whole village, the Kava ceremony, flowers and huge feast. Knowing that we were there, not just as tourists, but to help and share the life of the villagers, made the whole experience unique.

The best things for me were all the chances that I had to work with the local nurses, learning and exchanging knowledge with them, as well as sharing those 5 weeks with our Fijian crew, our new friends for life, who made us part of their life and families."
