Fiji is a country in much need of external help, especially with its younger population. An under-supply of teaching staff means large class sizes in its public education. Support the schools and their teachers by helping teach English to the local young people.
If you love kids and are passionate about educating future generations, love beaches and incredible Fijian food, then look no further.
In this program you have the choice of working with younger kids at a village kindergarten or schoolchildren in a primary school. Whichever you choose you will be a great help to the teacher and an exciting new presence for the kids, The project provides the opportunity to be immersed in the laid back Fijian culture whilst supporting locals through their education, improving future prospects.
