Construction project in Fiji

Construction project in Fiji

This international humanitarian construction workcamp was initiated to support the local community by rebuilding what was destroyed after the cyclone. This project, based in the Sigatoka region, is a fantastic opportunity during a humanitarian trip to work hand in hand with the local community in general and participate in the renovation of schools in particular.

Construction Volunteer Program: Tasks

In addition to ongoing projects, you can also take part in landscaping the surroundings, painting local schools, and renovating classrooms. Many schools we work with do not have the necessary funds to upgrade their classrooms or build libraries and information centers. That’s where we come in.

In many regions of Fiji, thousands of families live in inadequate housing, and children attend school in unsanitary buildings. Our construction project aims to create new, higher-quality structures so that children can receive an education in comfortable and secure classrooms. On average, you will work approximately 6 hours per day on the project.

Volunteer Schedule on the International Humanitarian Workcamp (Example)

On Monday, after breakfast, you will start planning the project with the assigned coordinator. Once you have planned the project and received relevant information about your mission, you can have lunch and then head to the work site. Once your work for the day is completed, you will participate in a debriefing meeting on the first day of your internship with your coordinator.

For the rest of the week, your day will start a bit earlier. You will be taken to the work site and assigned specific tasks for the day. A coordinator will be present to guide you during the project. After lunch, you will continue with construction and renovation activities on the international humanitarian workcamp.
