Weʼre raising £1,300 to travel to Fiji and volunteer with the charity Think Pacific
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In June 2019, I will be travelling to Fiji to spend one-month volunteering with the charity Think Pacific. By working alongside Fijian children, I will improve educational standards by providing teaching support and will introduce the first extra-curricular lessons in primary schools.
Think Pacific is partnered with the Fijian government to provide children in remote areas with improved education and further opportunities which otherwise would not be made available. Since starting in 2009, Think Pacific has increased literacy levels by 40%, sports participation by over 600% and attendance in remote schools by 16%. Amongst many other things, the charity has also funded 61 building projects including kindergarten schools and health clinics.
Unlike most volunteer projects, when in Fiji, I will be taken into a family’s own home and looked after as one of their own. This will fully immerse me into the Fijian culture, giving me the opportunity to partake in traditional activities and explore the beautiful land.
Over a third of the project costs support the long-term charity aims in Fiji, ensuring the sustainability of the youth and sport initiatives I will aid in implementing on my expedition to Fiji. The charity is extremely transparent in regards to the spending of the project costs and can be seen fully on their website.
Any donation, big or small, would be so greatly appreciated! I plan to cover the 24 hour-long flight cost myself, however, would be so grateful to any contribution to my project fees.
Thank you so much in advance,
