Challenge

For 25 years, facilitators have served The Virtues Project with few resources. We can no longer cover travel, training and material expenses. Requests for training and materials span the globe. Fiji has just been hit by a devastating cyclone which will delay and divert much needed training funds from Virtues Project Fiji. They need our help now to train and mobilize puppeteer facilitators who will instill hope, joy, strength and more to the communities served.

Solution

The Fiji puppet project will give children skills to cope with ongoing violence by awakening their gifts of character: courage, assertiveness, trust...and a voice through the use of puppets. Parents, children, educators and leaders will learn powerful strategies to transform the culture of their homes, schools and communities. This puppet project, which began last year, is being requested throughout the country as evidence of its' positive impact grows, and due to TV and radio audiences.

Long-Term Impact

Implementing this project will lead to the reduction in family violence, violence against women and the suffering of children in Fiji. In one year, with funding for facilitators, travel expenses and materials, this project can reach 20,000 people and over 10 years this project can reach 800,000 people to help transform the culture of homes, schools and communities implementing the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project in Prevention, Intervention and Healing programs.
