What is Vinaka Fiji ?

Vinaka Fiji is a charitable trust that aims to provide improved

basic amenities currently missing from village life in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji. Through fundraising and volunteering programs, Vinaka Fiji is improving the lives of 27 remote communities, bringing standards up from third world and giving something back to the villagers to say thank you (Vinaka) for welcoming us into your islands. The Trust works directly with the Yasawa Island communities so that the villagers are active in determining their own needs, participate in the planning and implementation and share responsibility for the completion of projects embarked upon.

“We don’t want to become relied upon. Our commitment is to assist Yasawa communities to become fully sustainable and self-supporting, as well as be educated in how to lift themselves out of the poverty cycle.” ROGER DOLD, CHAIRMAN OF VINAKA FIJI

Our Mission

The Vinaka Fiji Trust aims to improve the provision of basic needs and amenities for villages throughout the Yasawa Islands. It seeks to do this both through direct aid and by acting as a facilitator, bringing those who can help together with the landowners and residents.

Why Vinaka Fiji was started Remote, rugged and majestically beautiful, the Yasawa Islands were largely isolated from Fiji’s tourism industry until ‘Awesome Adventures Fiji’ took their maiden voyage into the island group in 2002. The daily ferry service the company had established gave travellers from around the globe access to these islands - an area that, at first glance, is paradise.

But despite the natural beauty of the Yasawas, the 27 villages dotted on different islands in the area are living below world standards of health and poverty. The team at Awesome Adventures worked closely with the local village Chiefs and communities to ensure they would not displace the islanders’ way of life, and to make sure the arrival of tourists to the region would be beneficial, not detrimental, to the locals. However very quickly it became clear that these villagers

were living far from the ‘paradise’ that first meets the eye. They were struggling from day to day with severe shortages of clean drinking water, little to no health services or facilities, poor nutrition, a lack of educational support and supplies, inadequate power and no sustainable way of life for the future. There were many challenges to making sure these villages could benefit from the many thousands of tourists visiting their beautiful islands each week. Awesome Adventures continued to work with the villages and give back wherever it could, however it soon became clear that a more focussed and dedicated approach was needed. So, in 2010, the Vinaka Fiji Trust was established to formalise and further the work and economic assistance

provided by Awesome Adventures, and open opportunities for others to give back too. The name ‘Vinaka Fiji’ was chosen to reflect the two-way nature of the relationship – Awesome Adventures and it’s tourists saying ‘thank you’ for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful islands and the local villages saying ‘thank you’ for helping us improve our living standards.

“ Visitors from around the world get so much delight in exploring the Yasawas. This is a way for travellers to say ‘thank you’ and give something back to the locals. Help make these islands a paradise for them too.” VINAKA FIJI MANAGER


d e lv o v in e b u o y n a How c with Vinaka Fiji?

There are a number of ways you can assist the Vinaka Fiji program:

Volunteering Whether you are a skilled tradesman, nurse, doctor or teacher, or simply someone who wants to give their time and skills to help those in need, the Vinaka Fiji program can use your help. Volunteering is all about giving something back and making a difference. Volunteering with us means that you’ll work alongside locals and other volunteers in specialised projects. The focus is on helping the villages achieve access to the basic needs in life including water, power, nutrition and education, and helping to build a sustainable future for these villages. If a holiday in Fiji, combined with the opportunity to lend a helping hand to people in need sounds like you, then volunteering with Vinaka Fiji will be a highlight of your travel experience.

Vinaka Fiji’s volunteering programs Having worked closely with the villages for over 10 years now, we know what is needed in the Yasawa Island villages and we also know what the villages want to work towards for their future. We don’t want to take the approach of commanding a new way of life for the villagers, as we believe that sustainability is all about securing the future by keeping the culture and relaxed way of life intact. In order to do this properly and sensitively, we work closely with the Yasawa villagers, so that they may help determine the needs, participate in the planning and implementation and share responsibility for completion of the projects embarked upon.

We have a strong tri-way partnership made up of representatives from Government, the Yasawa villages and Vinaka Fiji. All areas of development are designed to have low environmental impact, with environmental sustainability a key to the future.

Our key areas of focus are: • Create solutions that support sustainable, self sufficient communities • Achieve and maintain access to clean, reliable sources of water • Develop ‘micro enterprises’ based around nutrition, including food crops and education • Support local schools with education supplies and aid • Assist with ideas, information and solutions for power sources • Research and educate on the management and value of the marine environment

There are three core programs that Vinaka Fiji operates, that you can be involved in as a volunteer:

• Children, schools & education • Creating sustainable communities • Marine research & conservation

Donations Cash donations can be made online at www.vinakafiji.org.fj/donations Donations of useful materials, goods and services for the world undertaken are of immense use. If you can assist in this area, please contact us.

Corporate or other sponsor groups The scale of work to be done to provide these basic amenities in the Yasawas is large and we would be delighted to have corporate or other sponsors come onboard. Funds would utilised for agreed larger scale priority projects. The Vinaka Fiji Trust can also assist with linking charitable organisations who have raised funds or have goods they need to find a good home for but do not necessarily have an identified charity to work with. There are many areas of need in the Yasawas where such generosity can be directed.

Please contact us for more details on our corporate and other sponsor packages.


Children, Schools & Education Volunteering

“I just can’t describe how amazing this experience was. Stunning location, gorgeous people and a fantastic a feeling of lending a hand where it’s needed! I’d do it all again in a heartbeat!” Volunteer - Ingrid,Stockholm,Sweden


The remote schools in the Yasawas are under-resourced and the number of teachers available to teach at these schools is very low. This program therefore supports schools and teachers by assisting with classroom teaching (in English) based on the Fijian National curricular through classwork, literacy games and educational activities. You will be involved supporting students both inside the classroom and out.

WE HAVE IDENTIFIED THREE MAIN AREAS FOR SUPPORT:

1. Early childhood

2. One on one reading

3. Vocational

The age range of the students you will work with will vary from pre-schoolers right through to adult students who are returning to school to make the most of their opportunity for education. All teaching is done in English.

Early childhood program

These programs are attached to each village kindergarten and focuses on children from 3.5 years to five years old. The aim is to encourage parents to be our partners in developing an understanding and appreciation of the value of their children attending school.

One on one reading program

This valuable program is established at both Naviti District School and Yasawa High School. The aim is to improve learning outcomes for students who are significantly below the national average in literacy.

Vocational programs

Yasawa High School, together with Vinaka Fiji, have established two areas of vocational studies and work together to plan, implement and assess the programs. Each program is a one year course and each student is expected to study Agriculture and Marine studies.

ADDITIONAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS As opportunities to extend and expand on the three main programs above arise, we also often provide additional programs such as: • School holidays program • Development learning environments • Professional learning • Education for adults/mature students • Alternative wet weather programs

Recent achievements

In partnership with community, Government and individual donors, Vinaka Fiji have achieved: • One-on-one Tutorial Program implemented March 2012. Due to poor literacy pass rates and insufficient resources, the aim of the Tutorial Program was to improve the literacy level and confidence of pupils who needed additional support. We have 20 to 30 minute tutorial sessions tailor-made to meet the individual needs of the pupil. This is now supporting 22 pupils daily, which is almost one fifth of the school.

• Improved resources for the school including books, art supplies, sports equipment. • T he Yasawa High School has gone from one of the most under performing schools to see a pass rate of 71% in Form 7 last year.

•1  3 new laptops have been donated to the Yasawa High School which enable students

HOW YOU’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The local council and provisional government has specifically requested our assistance with English language teaching, maths, sports education and arts with the long term aim to assist in teacher education and training. Working with the Indigenous Yasawa community, this project provides the opportunity to be immersed in Fijian culture whilst supporting locals through their education and improving their future prospects.

HIGHLIGHTS

• Work with children, teenagers and young adults in one-on-one and group tasks • Spectacular island location • Immerse yourself in the local culture • Improve future prospects • Varied educational roles

to achieve national qualification standards in Computer & Technology.

•W  e can also proudly say that the pupils are learning and they can all read at both Naviti District School and Yasawa High School. Now we can start building their confidence as readers.

Creating sustainable communities Volunteering here ving volunteers ha of t c pa im “The w we r mind set of ho has changed ou use water. ving the work orking It has helped ha llage boys are w vi e th ; d e at in coord eers. with the volunt h for ank you very muc I would like to th this would happen ream this, I didn’t d here.” Chief sisili voVunikoro,Nai RatuApenisaSi


Become part of a village community and work alongside local people on a range of community projects. Many villages in the Yasawa Islands do not have access to a constant supply of fresh water and lack sustainable sources of income in part due to this fact. One of our primary goals is to secure a fresh water supply for all 27 villages in this region. Our goal is aligned to the World Health Organizations Millennium Development Goal of “all people having access to 5 litres of drinking water per person per day”. Seasonal rainfall and a lack of natural reservoirs are responsible for drinking water shortages and we aim to implement and promote alternative water sources and income generation initiatives. This is being accomplished through construction projects and local education. In addition we establish water management committees in each village so after a project is completed they are left with the responsibility for ongoing management of the new infrastructure and supply.

This program assists in several critical initiatives including: • Developments to improve access to sufficient fresh water through rainwater harvesting solutions • Water capacity management • Education of communities in resource management • Environmental initiatives • Sustainable agriculture practices • Assisting in the setup of micro enterprises The goals and priorities of this program are assessed regularly and set in conjunction with village community consultation and the resources available.

Recent achievements

In partnership with community, Government and individual donors, Vinaka Fiji have achieved: • The Vinaka Fiji Trust in conjunction with Barefoot Manta Resort & Blue Lagoon Cruises supported the development of a new Poultry Farm. The village residents are operating a small egg production micro business and sell eggs to neighbouring villages. • Following the discovery of a new spring water source, a new water catchment project was completed for supply to Kese & Mauira villages. • Many hours of volunteer time clearing land has resulted in new greenhouses and a vegetable seedling nursery. The nursery will allow for long term sustainable food harvesting and a self supporting community.

HOW YOU’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Volunteers help with this initiative through planning, hands on construction of rainwater collection systems, water capacity management, tracking and education. As a volunteer, you’ll also be helping to construct vegetable gardens, assisting in introducing diversity in crop planting, and building an awareness of the need for crop rotation. You’ll also be assisting in establishing chicken coops in the villages with a view to egg production supplementing the diets of the villagers, and perhaps increasing production with a view to selling eggs to the local resorts. It’s all about working towards sustainability.

HIGHLIGHTS

• Become part of a village community • Assist villages with the means to live sustainably • Implement projects to provide villages with fresh drinking water • Work alongside local villagers

• A disaster relief programme has started in Kese and Soso Village with the support of the Fijian Government and members of the Pacific Climate Change Round Table. A food bank of resilient crops have been planted as well as a community fund to provide basic food items to each household after a cyclone or other natural disasters.

Marine research & Conservation

Volunteering

iji is with Vinaka F “Volunteering ou . ’ experience Y a real ‘hands-on get the locals and e d si g on al k wor tly ur work direc to see how yo iduals , both as indiv m e th ts fi ne be unity.” and as a comm ance cques, Paris, Fr Volunteer - Ja


Comprising over 300 islands, 4,000 square miles of reef and 1,500 species of sea life, there are literally thousands of reasons to volunteer for Vinaka Fiji’s Marine research and conservation program! Take the opportunity to learn to scuba dive, or extend your skills in this incredible marine environment of the Yasawa Islands. Then take your new skills and begin conducting underwater surveys in the warm, turquoise waters of the Pacific. Visit traditional villages and get to know the community, meet the headmen and children, and support their learning about environmental marine conservation and fishing practices.

Participating in this program you will be involved in one of or several of the following:

* SCUBA DIVING REQUIREMENTS

• Manta Ray Research – observation, identification, behavioural studies and habitat analysis through daily swimming and snorkelling with these magnificent creatures

• Reef Check Fiji – providing insight to the health of a particular reef area through diving and snorkelling observation, photographing and recording of data • Crown of Thorn Seastar (COTS) Watch – monitoring and management of this devastating predator to coral reefs • Coral and clam nursery - Clams filter the water and keep it ‘clean’ which is essential for coral growth. You’ll contribute to part of a nationwide program to re-introduce and disperse clams including the giant clam Tridacna Gigas throughout Fiji

You will spend time on this expedition both snorkelling and scuba diving and as such you need to be qualified to at least Open Water Level. Non-divers can join the program following completion of a diver training program (approx. 5 days) with Reef Safari in Fiji that will certify you up to an Open Water Level. Note: prices for the Marine research and conservation program include all dive and snorkel gear.

• Marine Biodiversity Database Fiji – tracking existing and new species • Habitat mapping – providing in-depth information into the layout and composition of the reef • Assist the educational program through teaching sustainable reef practices and teaching snorkelling skills Participants will also record information on sharks, rays, turtles and cetaceans spotted during their stay and also periodically other species identified on the endangered lists of Fiji to support protection efforts by the Coral Reef Allowance and Fiji Fisheries. Information and data from our programs is provided to: Manta Trust, Fiji Fisheries, University of South Pacific, Marine Ecology Fiji and Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network (GCRMN).

We have a highly experienced team of staff leading international volunteers working on collecting data that is provided for research projects assisting in the protection of endangered marine-life. Data is also used to establish Marine Protected Areas that will provide long term benefits to the local community and help guarantee food security for future generations.

Recent achievements

In partnership with community, Government and individual donors, Vinaka Fiji have achieved: • More than 100 coral fragments have been replanted back onto the reef in the marine park surrounding Vinaka Fiji’s base, Barefoot Manta Resort. • 3300 predatory crown of thorn starfish have been removed from the reef. This long term initiative will result in healthy reefs and rejuvenation. • Sea Cucumbers play a crucial role the ecosystem. Two Sea Cucumber reproduction pens have been introduced to the marine park which will help to increase the population. • A mangrove nursery has been planted which will be transplanted to areas where mangroves have been damaged or destroyed. Mangroves play an important role in the development of reef productivity.

HOW YOU’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Through participating in this program you will truly get the feeling that you have played a part in protecting Fiji’s stunning natural marine environment for future generations and travellers to enjoy. Not only will you complete hands on work to help research and conserve the environment, but you will assist in passing on skills to the local villagers who are the day to day guardians of this beautiful marine environment.

HIGHLIGHTS

• Working with and experiencing amazing marine life including Manta Rays and Giant Clams • Scuba diving and snorkelling as part of your work • Working with local villages to build their skills and knowledge of their local marine environment

Life on the job Program outline

Our programs are seven nights in duration – five days of volunteering (Monday to Friday) and two days (weekends) of relaxation on a tropical island! You may book any number of weeks you wish from 1 to 26, however the program can only be purchased in multiples of one week. If you would like to book a longer duration than that (specified on the booking form up to 12 weeks), please contact us for availability and costs. The program does not include any international travel, or accommodation other than the seven night programs. We can however assist with all pre and post accommodation bookings required in Fiji.

Choosing a program

Think about how you would like to help the people of the Yasawa Islands and what program best suits your skill sets and interests. Consider when you would most like to travel and if you would like to do volunteer work only, or combine volunteer work with a holiday and do a ‘Voluntour’. Vinaka Fiji partners with Awesome Adventures Fiji to provide a range of packages offering you the opportunity to combine volunteering and travel. ‘Voluntour’ packages are available for purchase as one week volunteering (minimum) plus your desired length of travel pre or post your volunteering program. Contact us for more details on turning your volunteering experience into a Voluntour!

Where you stay

Our volunteering programs are based in the remote Yasawa Island group, consisting of a chain of 20 ancient volcanic islands. Crystalclear lagoons surround the pristine white sandy beaches and the northern islands are home to the famous Blue Lagoon.

Base Camp

Barefoot Manta is the Base for our volunteers. The resort is situated between three beaches on spectacular Drawaqa Island. One of the beaches overlooks a breathtaking coral lagoon, home to a large channel of coral gardens where majestic manta rays come to feed. Set amongs mature trees, just a few steps from the beach, are the Standard and Deluxe Dorms with shared bathrooms and facilities. Safaritent-style Deluxe Bures with ensuite bathrooms are also available as an upgrade. All rooms are serviced daily. Bed linen is provided however you will need to bring all towels and toiletries. There is a basic laundry service available for a small fee.

Meals

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in your program cost. Meals are a social scene, with both volunteers and resort guests dining in a communal setting.

Weekends at your leisure

Saturday and Sunday are enjoyed at your leisure. Relaxation is big in Fiji, but if you’re in the mood there are incredible activities available throughout the Yasawas including some of the world’s best snorkelling and diving, hiking, local villages to visit, cultural activities, hand-line fishing, visits to caves… even swimming with manta rays depending on the season! Sunday is typically a ‘day of rest’ in Fiji so supervised activities are limited, but volunteers are always welcome to attend the traditional Village Church Service - generally a very moving experience.

Where your money goes

The fee for the volunteer programs covers your accommodation, transfers, meals and project costs. The Trust also raises funds for village projects through donations made by each volunteer as well as donations from Awesome Adventures Fiji and other companies, organisations and individuals. It remains a key principle of the Vinaka Fiji Trust that the majority of the funds raised will be spent on the delivery of specific field projects. The small percentage that does not go directly to these projects instead goes towards administration costs, such as the recruitment of new volunteers. It is important that our efforts remain cost neutral.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:

• Serviced accommodation at Barefoot Manta, Drawaqa Island in your choice of dorm room or deluxe bure • All meals • Welcome meeting and introduction to Fiji and local customs • All training relevant to complete each project and guidance by experienced staff • All project equipment and materials required • In-country support • 24 hour emergency phone • Transfers

It is the responsibility of all volunteers travelling with Vinaka Fiji to check and adhere to Fiji’s Visa requirements. As most volunteers choose to stay and travel around Fiji before or after volunteering, they should enter the country on a ‘Visitor/Tourist Visa’, which can be obtained for a period of up to 3 months. There is currently no specific Visa for Volunteers in Fiji and volunteering is not considered work under the Immigration requirements, so you do not need a work visa.
