Think Pacific are recruiting volunteers for overseas projects in summer 2022.
There may also be funding available towards this opportunity, details will be listed here once confirmed.
Think Pacfic is a UK social enterprise and registered Fijian charity, which works with local government partners to achieve ethical, responsible and sustainable development in remote Fijian communities, whilst allowing university students to have a safe, structured and rewarding experience.
Our project is a two-way process. We improve the life-skills, global understanding and personal development of both Fijian Youths and international youths through collaborative learning and volunteering.
During the project, international volunteers live at the heart of a Fijian village, experience challenges, teamwork and cultural differences and work side-by-side with Fijian youths to discuss, explore and implement programmes to tackle a range of social issues. Themes include public health, mental health, sports development, micro enterprise, employability and life skills as well as running youth and sports activities in rural villages for Fijian children, which all achieve the aims of Fiji’s National Development Plan.
In partnership with the Fijian government our overall goal is to increase access to information, advice and opportunity for children and youths in rural Fijian communities, whilst empowering young people (Fijian and international) to become more self-confident, culturally astute and empathetic leaders, who can tackle local and global challenges.
