Fiji is known for its beautiful beaches, lush vegetation, and rich cultural traditions. However, in recent years, Fiji has experienced the devastating effects of climate change. In 2016, the northeast corner of Viti Levu was severely hit by Cyclone Winston, damaging homes, roads, crops, and coral reefs. Youthlinc has completed projects in a previous village and has moved to a new village within the Ra province of Fiji, located along the northeast side of the main Fijian island of Viti Levu This side of the island was directly hit by Cyclone Winston and is still recovering years later. Youthlinc partners directly with the Navolau District school to serve the neighboring villages. 

There are approximately 180 villagers who are primarily fishermen, and subsistence farmers growing bananas, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, corn, cucumber, beans, and root crops. One of our main projects is to support infrastructure at the school and access to water/sanitation stations throughout the community. The mothers group is a force of nature, they do everything they can to improve the life of their families. 

We are excited to continue to work directly with the village, the Ministry of Education, and the Office of Community Development to support their plans for the future.
