Volunteers in the South Pacific work together to clear rubbish off a beach in Fiji.

Volunteering in the South Pacific

Experience incredible island life while supporting community development

Volunteer in the South Pacific and take part in volunteer work that is designed to address the needs of local communities. We offer a range of different projects in both Fiji and Samoa, so you’re bound to find a placement that appeals to you.

You can join our internationally-recognised Shark Conservation Project, which generates important research for scientists. Or you can take part in full-on cultural immersion, living in a local Fijian or Samoan village community. You can also support early childhood development in local childcare centres and contribute to awareness programs about the value of good nutrition.

As Projects Abroad takes care of all the details, you’ll enjoy a hassle-free experience. We have full time local staff at a physical office in each country, who offer 24/7 support. This means that you can focus on what is really important: becoming part of our ongoing efforts to help people.

Where we are based in the South Pacific

We offer several volunteer opportunities in the South Pacific, namely in the island nations of Fiji and Samoa.

Wherever you go in the South Pacific, you’ll be working with us to achieve sustainable, long-term goals. Non-communicable diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure are on the rise in Fiji and Samoa. We’re addressing this need, so you can help local communities tackle health problems relating to changes in diet and lifestyle.  

You can also work with young children to support early childhood development and improve literacy and numeracy in both countries. The more support children get at a young age, the more prepared they are to cope at school. By doing volunteer work in the South Pacific, you can also support vital conservation efforts at our Shark Conservation Project in Fiji.  

Throughout it all, Projects Abroad staff in Fiji and Samoa will be there for you. They’ll provide guidance and make sure you have the time of your life!

Safety and staff support

Your safety and security is our prime concern. We have many procedures and systems to ensure you have the support you need to enjoy your trip with peace of mind. Our Projects Abroad staff are available 24 hours a day to help, and will be on-hand to make sure you settle in well at your accommodation and placement. If you encounter any problems, they will be available to help at any time.
