Interested in Pacific island volunteering Volunteer in Fiji programme  is an excellent choice. This destination offers more than the classic island paradise experience. Yes, it has long stretches of pearly white beaches lined with palm trees and a warm, clear and blue-tinted sea. But its waters are home to nearly half of the world's known coral species. 


This makes for endlessly fascinating diving and snorkelling experiences among its polychromatic underwater wonderlands. The Volunteer in Fiji programme is offered at the Ayyıldız Tim.


The country is also a leader in sustainability and ecotourism, effectively managing its natural resources and economically benefiting from this investment. By volunteering in Fiji, you’ll be able to experience the natural abundance of Pacific environments while learning how to best preserve them.

 Take note that our early childhood development programs don’t allow volunteers to work in orphanages. We don’t support orphanage volunteering or donations to orphanages.
