Why Volunteer in Fiji
Yes, the Fiji islands are mostly known for tropical scenery, coral gardens, and a vital tourist economy. Unfortunately, very little of Fiji's income from tourism makes it to their disadvantaged communities, such as Nadi. Most tourists coming to the Fiji islands land initially on Nadi only to immediately depart for the more mainstream tourist islands. Though just as beautiful as any in Fiji, the Nadi area is mostly a poor community where many native Fijians live, meaning it is a place where you may be able to have a particularly profound impact as a volunteer.
In Nadi you could work with students developing language skills, assist the elderly in care homes, or help protect the vital marine environment and wildlife on the Fiji coastline. Whether you want to connect one on one with others or get in touch with your outdoorsy side, there may be a perfect volunteer position in Fiji for you. You can combine your fantasy of a tropical island with your desire to help others and potentially find a more meaningful purpose. And why not discover your passion in the world that was formerly just your screensaver fantasyland? You can make the world a better place and hit the beach before bedtime every day in Fiji if you like.
And it’s not just the beach that makes Fiji a special place; there are lifelong memories just waiting to be made all around. A perfect example is the Sri Siva Subramaniya Temple in Nadi, which reveals how Fijians transcend typical beach life. The largest Hindu temple in the southern hemisphere and the most colorful, Sri Siva Subramaniya, like the exquisite islands themselves, illustrates what makes Fiji so lovely and unique. Many pilgrims visit the temple but perhaps you’re looking for a more exciting adventure than a pilgrim might. If so, Fiji has famous shark dives to die for, and destination scuba diving. You don’t often see the words colorful and pristine together but they entwine with natural grace on the picture-perfect beaches and waters of Fiji. Speaking of surprising synergies, why not combine an island getaway with a chance to restore your zest for life? Volunteering in Fiji could make waking up in the morning charged about the day ahead a daily event.
