Volunteer Trip to Fiji

Words can't describe my experience and all the amazing people I met along the way! This is my third time volunteering abroad, Fiji is definitely somewhere you should consider going to! There are so many friendly and welcoming people here on this island.. I feel like I'm at home! Although it's nothing like home.. here you will be living a whole different lifestyle, but that's one of the many stories you will be able to tell while you embark on this incredible journey! Personally, I will always remember the children I got to teach at the kindergarten school. They made a huge impact on me! Each one of them have the cutest personalities and touched my heart. Even though I came there to teach them what I know, they taught me as well. I also enjoy learning different cultures, here you will! The first week is orientation week- you get a tour of the Capitol city, you get to take a cooking, weaving and language class. You learn a lot and that's exactly what I love doing! So if you're up for learning and experiencing the world, making a difference for others and having fun.... Volunteer abroad!! I promise you it will be the best decision you will make and it will be worth every penny that you save!:)

How can this program be improved?
If I had to choose one thing, it would be to work more hours! I felt like I had a lot more I wanted to give.

Teaching English

I think you actually get more out of volunteering than you realise you might be there to help them but they actually change you more it's a big world out there and we are closeted in our own small environment that we forget about others.

How can this program be improved?
The length of the orientation could be shortened especially if you are only there for two weeks

Fiji: the lesser known aspects

Initially when I decided to travel to Fiji for a volunteer trip, I expected to be beach front with endless sun. This changed immediately as we landed into Suva, as we were in a large city of locals, no beaches, and constant rain. It was definitely a reality check. What also shocked me was that this city was not familiar with tourists, so people in the city would stare. Nonetheless, the locals were some of the nicest people I have ever met. They were very generous and always willing to share. Even the students that we met at the schools and kindergartens were happy, even though their school materials were breaking and they were so limited with toys that they played with beer bottle lids. They taught me there that happiness was more important than money, and that was truly reflected in their culture. As for the IVHQ program itself, the local organization is called Green Lion Fiji. The coordinators are amazing and super friendly, and the cooks are amazing. However, the organization as a whole is not as organized, as everything runs on "fiji time". Overall, my fellow volunteers really enhanced my trip, as I got to make friends all across the globe, and we got to experience the amazing and new culture together.

Teaching in Fiji

The Fiji project was amazing. I was able to teach a class on my own which was a skill I am able to take home with me. The children were excited to see new people and to speak English with a native speaker. The Green Lion team were welcoming and supportive. It was a fantastic adventure.
