To the Supporters of our Project in Fiji

We are grateful to GlobalGiving donors for your generous support to our mangrove rehabilitation project in Nakorotubu District, Ra Province in Fiji.

In line with the national government` target of planting 2 million mangrove seedlings, we are actively engaging local villagers in the protection of the shorelines. This effort is highly recognized by the local and national government. We may face issues such as COVID-19 pandemic and disasters such as cyclones, but we are committed to continue encourage local communities to be part of the rehabilitation process.

Moreover, we mobilized our resources and provided the local communities with trainings and agricultural inputs to somehow reduce their vulnerability from disasters and of the negative impact of the pandemic. Since the pandemic, we have trained local people who were laid off from tourism related jobs. We taught them how to grow vegetables organically to address the problem of food insecurity.

Meanwhile, as a result of the gradual restoration of mangrove, there is a now a noticeable increase of fish catches both for the villagers` own consumption, as well as for commercial purposes. It helps sustain the basic needs of families living along the coastal area. As we work with the villagers for the sustainable management of their coastal forest, we are aware of how important to involve not only the elders, but also the youths. As island villagers become more vulnerable from frequent disasters, collective responsibilities are in need.
