PMGY volunteer in Fiji participants are based on the east coast of Fiji in Suva around 4-hours away from Nadi Airport. Suva is not only the capital city of Fiji, but it is also the largest city in the whole of the South Pacific.
The city is perched on a hilly peninsula between Suva Harbour and Laucala Bay. With everything you’d expect from a modern day city – shopping malls and farmers markets, restaurants and entertainment. Suva has been the capital of Fiji since 1882, and many buildings date back to the colonial era. With this mix of history, combined with the amenities of a modern city – parks, museums and a vibrant nightlife – you’ll find plenty of things to do.
Participants generally volunteer on a Monday-Friday basis and the weekends are free to relax or travel further afield. As our volunteers will testify, the wider travel opportunities are extremely important to the whole experience and it is something we certainly recommend you get involved in. Our local team are able to arrange activities, transportation and accommodation but please note this is usually an independent experience outside of the core programme.
