All volunteer projects in Fiji begin with an Introduction week packed full of exciting adventures, cultural excursions and interactions.
Want to work with a dedicated team in the gorgeous landscape of Fiji and make a significant difference to the community? During the Renovation and Construction project you’ll get hands-on experience whilst helping some of the poorest communities. Whether it’s building a cultural centre, playground or library you’ll transform the environment in which they live and create a legacy that lasts. You don’t need any previous experience – just lots of energy, a desire to help and a commitment to building a community.
Your TRU Experience
You’ll gain the satisfaction of helping others and knowing that your efforts are making a difference. Along the way, you’ll learn new skills, grow in confidence, have a greater understanding of a different culture, and invaluable personal and professional development. By travelling to one of the most stunning places in the world, you’ll stand out from all the other CVs potential employers and universities might see.
You’ll leave behind a building and a community but you’ll take-away memories that will stay with you forever and skills you won’t gain anywhere else.
You and your team will travel to the selected project site and begin to clean and prepare the work area. Your supervisor will ensure that you know where things have to go and what you have to do.
Don’t worry if you’ve never done this sort of work before – you’ll be taught new skills and your safety will be ensured at all times. Together with your fellow volunteers and the foreman you will bring your project plan to life.
During your stay you will be involved in a variety of tasks, including:
