Sigatoka is most well-known for being a part of Fiji’s Coral Coast – a beautiful area on the west side of Fiji lined with beachside resorts and hotels. Sand dunes are also nearby, as well as the Kulukulu village and Kula Eco Park, making this a lively tourist destination. This area is Fiji’s adventure capital, since there are thrilling activities to join, such as four-wheeling adventures, surfing beaches and even the chance to feed sharks!

Fiji’s residents are extremely multicultural, with an increasing number of Indo-Fijian, Australians and New Zealanders. Aside from the locals, the capital frequently hosts several Asian sailors on leave and university students from around the Pacific.

As a volunteer, we will place you at a kindergarten in the Coral Coast community. The primary aim is to provide educational enrichment for the children and assist the teachers with creative activities. The kid’s ages range from 4 to 6 and they are enthusiastic to meet and learn from foreign volunteers.


Your duties as a volunteer may include:

  • Teaching basic English
  • Planning activities to help with English skills
  • Playing games with the children
  • Organizing dynamic activities
  • Developing students’ conversational skills
  • Organizing arts and crafts activities


A typical day: You can expect to volunteer around five hours per day, Monday to Friday. Your days will begin at 9:00 AM with English lessons and recreational activities. After lunch, you will help with lesson planning for the next day. Weekends are free.


Holidays: During some holidays, the children will be out of school and the project will not run as scheduled. During this time, volunteers will be primarily involved in cleaning tasks, renovations and leading the Kid’s Club.

Breakfast is Western-style and lunch and dinner are typically Fijian-style and, occasionally, Indian or Western.

  • All participants must bring along with them 4-5 COVID-19 self-test kits (average 1 per week) to cover their stay.

Coral Coast Culture Week (Highly Recommended):
For an additional fee, you can extend your stay for a week, with a program designed to introduce you to Fijian culture, as well as give you time to get to know the other volunteers. During the program, you’ll have time to explore several famous sights around the Coral Coast, followed by Fijian customs, language, weaving and cooking sessions.


Optional Extras (additional fee)
If you choose to stay in Sigatoka for the weekend, the center offers a variety of activities and destinations, including:

  • 4×4 tours
  • Sigatoka Sand Dunes
