A truly unique, raw and exclusive local Fijian experience! This Island lies in the outer regions of the Mamanuca Islands, approximately 1-hour fast ferry from the mainland. It is a volcanic island, with a steep, grass-covered interior, rocky coastline, and long sandy beaches. You’ll have full access to and will take part in one of the few traditional Fijian island villages left in this region.
Participate in a responsible orphanage volunteer placements where you’ll provide support to disadvantaged children who have been abandoned or separated from their parents due to tragic circumstances beyond their control. The Orphanage Fiji placements will have you working in various children's homes caring for children from newborn all the way up to 20 years of age and awaiting adoption. You’ll provide valuable assistance through direct supervised care and general help around the homes.
