|About||Habitat for Humanity Fiji assists lower income families and communities in Fiji improve their living conditions by offering them a “hand-up” not a “hand-out”.|
|Mission||HFH Fiji works in partnership with lower income families and communities to provide them with decent living conditions. HFH Fiji assists them to build and improve their homes and other community structures and infrastructure such as water/sanitation systems, community evacuation centres, schools, orphanages, women’s shelters, medical clinics, community halls, etc.|
HFH Fiji Highlights:
• In January 2011, HFH Fiji completed the refurbishment of four boarding schools on the island of Taveuni. HFH Fiji partnered with UNICEF to improve water and sanitation facilities and strengthen the building structures for the schools to be used as community evacuation centres in the event of future disasters.
• In December 2010, HFH Fiji completed its first community water projects in Nakorovou village and Lawaki village, Tailevu. The Nakorovou and Lawaki projects were funded by the Australian and Japanese governments respectively. These partnerships are part of HFH Fiji’s Community Water Project which provides safe and reliable water and sanitation systems to lower income communities.
• In partnership with NZAID, HFH Fiji has helped over 100 families to install simple measures such as window shutters as well as check roof conditions on their existing homes to make them resistant to wind damage in future cyclones.
