Weʼve raised £280 to Fundraise for The Think Pacific Foundation, working towards ensuring no child is deprived of an education in Fiji!
- Nadi, Fiji
- Funded on Tuesday, 27th November 2018
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.
On June 2nd I will be traveling to Fiji to take part in a volunteering scheme with Think Pacific. I will be living with a Fijian family in the local community for just under four weeks, during which I will be teaching English and extracurricular activities such as dance, art, and sport to children in a rural Fijian school. These projects are making an immense difference to the lives of children living in hardship.
I am raising money to cover the 30% of my project fee that goes directly to the TP charity in addition to anything else that I can fundraise for them! The money will go directly to assist the community and Think Pacific charity, funding:
Local schools/ kindi
School resources -pencils, exercise books, teaching resources/teacher training/ provide local scholarships/ grants.
Assist with implementing UNICEF just Play Programme, Conducting WASH Surveys in rural areas (Water Sanitation & Hygiene), Health advocacy.
Medical provision to outer island clinics and ongoing Cyclone Relief (Food, clothing, distributing donations)
Our mission going out to Fiji is to empower disadvantaged children to overcome poverty issues and achieve holistic health. This is achieved by improving education, sports development, infrastructure assistance and health promotion.
In partnership with the Fijian Ministry of Education, we will be working to implement education, health/ sports development initiatives.
Over a third of children living in Fiji grow up in poverty, living on less than one dollar a day. Only 50% of children have access to adequate sanitation and fresh water and just 5% of children gain an early years education. The TP charity & projects aim to provide increased opportunities for children by replenishing school resources, providing teacher training, increase standards in educations, extracurricular activities and sports.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page! Any support you can give is greatly appreciated, Vinaka!

Hello everyone! I've been back in the UK for just over 2 weeks now, returning to Australia from Fiji for a week. It's been a bit of a whirlwind, so I appologise for such a late update! Ihad the most incredible 4 weeks in Fiji, a lot of ups and downs, but the entire experience was amazing. I am unable to send the long update I wanted to on here, so I am sending everyone a letter or email (if you are in Aus) to update you all in more detail. Thanks again for all your generousity, long update incoming!
