Our local partners, the community and local council have specifically requested our assistance with English language teaching, mathematics, sports education and arts.
As local teachers are under-resourced there is an immediate need to provide them with assistance and additional English language resources.
In assisting teachers with lessons, you will help improve the education of disadvantaged Fijian children.
*During school breaks volunteers will conduct kids clubs in the villages of Dawasamu and assist with other projects necessary at that time. This includes lesson planning, resource making, workshops, gardening or other community programs or improvements and renovations to schools
How this project makes a difference:
Locally trained teachers are in need of assistance to provide the necessary levels of education to enable local children to have access to greater future opportunities. English language skills help provide a link between different ethnic communities, as well as increasing employment. Our teaching and childcare projects provide additional resources to teachers in need.
Fiji's short, mid, and long-term objectives
All of our programs have short, mid and long-term objectives that fit with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This enables us to report on our collaborative impact across the world in a streamlined manner, measuring which UN SDGs we are making a substantial contribution to. Furthermore, this will help our local partners and communities measure and visualize their contribution to the UN SDGs.
Upon arrival to base, you will be educated about the history of the UN SDGs. You will learn about the specific goals of your location, the long-, mid- and short-term objectives, and also clarification of how your personal, shorter-term involvement contributes to these goals on a global level.
Our aim is to educate you on local and global issues, so that you continue to act as active global citizens after your program, helping to fulfil our mission of building a global network of people united by their passion to make a difference.
