BY DONNA PARKIN — A new kindergarten will be built in Fiji’s Sigatoka Valley thanks to the Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort (FOR) as part of its commitment to improving the life quality of its community.
The kindergarten will take about 11 months to build at the Conua School under the supervision of FOR’s engineering team. This follows the opening last November of the village meeting and school hall bure at Conua Primary School, built as a “voluntourism” project by Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort.
As with its last project, this latest “voluntourism” effort invites Outrigger guests to be part of the resort’s initiative to make a difference in the lives of its people.
Construction begins this month and when completed, will cater to 30 children aged four- to six-years old.
Providing authentic tourism experiences for guests is an integral part of Outrigger Resorts’ philosophy. General Manager Peter Hopgood shared, “Connecting to the place and people when visiting another land is what inspires people to travel and what creates those lasting memories.”
