Bula our new friend.
We are a small village on the west coast of Fiji which was destroyed by Cyclon Winston in 2016.
We had 21 houses but just 1 is left. We are trying to build new houses and also planting lots of vegetables and fruit around our village.
We need your help for 4/5 hours a day in exchange for delicious food and simple accomodation. Don't expect a luxurious resort. You will live in the same conditions as we do :-). If you have your own camping mat and sleeping bag, please bring it. You'll have your own corner in our big house and your own living space separeted by courtains.
Make sure to bring your smartphone with data as we do not provide wifi. Vodafone gets good reception here.
We need new friends who can help us with:
- gardening
- carpenting works - you don't need to be a carpernter, we need handy people
- housekeeping
- creative people - you can make profiles on social networks bring some more friends to give us a hand
The boys from the village will take you to the incredible waterfalls nearby. It's a 30 minute walk through the bush and at the waterfall there is a real paradise! You can have a swim in the small pond under the waterfall or just follow the river for more deeper ponds. You'll also fall in love with the beautifull view of the sea and the other islands.
You can become a part of our big family and experience the authentic Fijian lifestyle.
Our tradition is that the new person who is coming to our village needs to bring some Kava. So, please buy some at the market in Korovou for 20 backs or more and we'll have a lot of fun. Don't worry, we will share some with you later as well.
How to find us? Come to Korovou by bus from Suva. It takes about 1 or 2 hours depending on the traffic in the city. In Korovou ask for Mini Van to Delai Kuku, it usually goes 2 or 3 times a day . Feel free to ask us and we can wait for you in Korovou.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Villagers from Delai Kuku.
