Our Nairai team are all doing fantastically well, having enjoyed their first few days as castaways in their Fijian paradise.
With many of the team choosing to fly into Fiji early, our group of 18 volunteers have had plenty of time to get to know each other and relax into the slow pace of Island life.
After the past week of briefings with the Fijian Ministry and time to sunbathe and enjoy the beautiful Lomaiviti lagoon, the next and most exciting phase of their expedition is almost upon us! This will be the first team ever to visit Nairai Island, so the anticipation is building!
The Fijian community of Vutuna village who will soon be hosting our team are eagre to welcome their first TP group to their little island. The project is of huge importance; We’ll be providing vital assistance to the local primary school, which is in such a poor condition that it faces closure without the vital building work we will be carrying out over the next 4 weeks. We’ll also be launching the first youth, kindergarten and sports programmes for the islands’ children.
The team are all set to immerse themselves into the challenges and adventures of traditional Fijian life and we’ll be exploring the island during adventure days – from trekking the jungle to spear fishing and snorkelling the outer reefs. This is a place only a handful of people from outside of Fiji have ever been lucky enough to visit with Nairai being so cut off from tourism, it’s makes this another unique TP expedition.
With three teams now in full swing across the island province, our incredible Fijian summer has begun!
