Fiji Building Project


Think Pacific - Building Project

Join a team of School of the Built Environment and Engineering students from 25th July for a four-week expedition to a remote outer island in Fiji, to build a community centre from foundations to completion for a local village.  This opportunity is an incredible experience for student volunteers, as you will live with families within the village and immersing yourself in traditional Fijian life and culture. 

The project is in partnership with The Fijian Ministry of Health, ensuring the projects are ethical and directed by government and local people. At the end of the four weeks, you will have made a huge difference of building a new community centre for a rural village severely impacted by Cyclone Winston in 2016, and more importantly, you come away an amazing life experience.
