Summary

In Dawasamu, Fiji, our collaborative project focuses on community development, where we assist local community members with gender equality initiatives, global public health, early childhood development, safety initiatives, waste management and recycling.

Challenge

The country has pledged to provide education, social security, access to clean water, income equality, and to protect land and marine resources. Groundwater sources have dried up, and shortages are common in the dry season. There is a need to adapt livelihoods in response to the changing pressures on traditional life due to ongoing environmental and social change. Fiji also faces many health challenges, from a lack of health professionals to insufficient and inconsistent food supplies.

Solution

The project focuses on continuous knowledge exchange with the local community and partners to ensure effective, long-term, sustainable change. Through training and workshops, the project builds capacity with key stakeholders around environmental education and awareness, health data analysis, safety processes, healthcare support, and waste management. The project provides essential health, safety and educational resources.

Long-Term Impact

The project works on immediate change whilst building capacity and affecting attitudes, regulations and policy. Through an ongoing mentoring program, key community members can assist and lead the key projects around early childhood development, preventative health and healthcare support, safety measures when on land and on marine ventures, local waste management and recycling. In the long term, the project will phase over to the community and the collaborative partners.
