Volunteering with Vinaka Fiji is a significantly rewarding experience. It’s your opportunity to help improve the lives of the Fijian people. If restricted finances are holding you back, create and drive your own travel campaign to raise the funds. FundMyTravel provides the online platform to make this possible.
Setup is simple. Complete your FundMyTravel and include information that will inform your friends and family that you’re going to make their contribution to your experience worthwhile. They want to hear from someone, who is inspired, hard working and determined to get abroad. Talk about the Vinaka Fiji program and mission, Fiji’s beautiful and culturally rich Yasawa Islands and how your contribution, will be meaningful, for you and the Yasawans!
Then spread the word about your campaign by using your social media channels, email contacts or whatever works for you. If you stay motivated and continue to keep your networks updated and engaged with your fundraising and travel planning progress, you’ll have raised the necessary funds in no time. And once you’ve volunteered with us, don’t forget to let everyone that’s made a contribution know what it was like. Maybe they’d like to volunteer too.
Fundraising to Support the Vinaka Fiji Trust
Even if you’re unable to volunteer with Vinaka Fiji directly, you can still make a difference by making a donation to the trust. Vinaka Fiji receives funding through its volunteer programs and it’s major sponsors but we are also heavily reliant on the monetary donations of kind-hearted individuals, organisations and groups. The donations made are used to facilitate the Vinaka Fiji mission and purchase some of the materials and resources required to make our projects possible.
Make an Individual Donation
You can make an individual donation to the Vinaka Fiji Trust via our nominated secure fundraising website, FundraiseOnline. On completion of your donation, you will receive an official notification via email confirming the amount donated.
Make a Project Donation
Alternatively you might like to make a donation
to a specific fundraising project. At present we are in search of funding to
implement a water source program that will provide a much needed water supply
and power solution for seven villages in the Naviti District of the Yasawa
Island Group, Fiji.
Organise a Vinaka Fiji Trust Fundraising or Sponsorship Event
As an individual or organisation you have access to an enormous network of associates, and or family and friends. If you’d like to organise your own Vinaka Fiji Trust Fundraising or Sponsorship Event, you can create a Fundraising Page via our nominated secure fundraising website, FundraiseOnline. Once you’ve created your page promote your event or sponsorship request via your existing networks. Donations received will go directly to the Vinaka Fiji Trust.
Corporate and Group Sponsorship and Donations
If you have funds or goods that your group or organisation would like to see put to good use, Vinaka Fiji can assist. The scale of the work to be done to provide basic amenities in the Yasawas is large and we would be delighted to have larger sponsors come on board. We can utilise your contribution to support volunteer and charitable projects prioritised by us or on agreed projects if that is your preference. For further information please don’t hesitate to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Villagers are very happy that there is now more capacity for water. The
impact of having volunteers here has changed our mindset of how we use
water. It has helped having the work coordinated, the village boys are
working in with the volunteers. I would like to thank you very much for
this, I didn't dream this would happen here."
