Offering love, care, education and moral upbringing; it caters for the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual developmentt of children and we are honoured to help.
Poverty remains a significant concern in Fiji despite the images portrayed in holiday brochures. St Tabitha’s and the Orthodox mission has focused its efforts in the poorer rural districts of Fiji where poverty has increased with limited food, education and housing causing great hardship to families.
We aim to support the work of the Orthodox mission in the following ways:
1. To support the holistic care and education of children at St. Tabitha’s orphanage & children’s home.
2. To improve educational outcomes for the current children by introducing a primary/highschool Tutoring Program.
3. To establish a Community Kindergarten accessible to local families in the Lautoka district.
OUR FUTURE PLANS: To custom build a Kindergarten, a Primary school (incorporating a tutoring class) and a medical clinic.
DONATIONS: Your contribution big or small will make this dream a reality.
As a Humanitarian, or a Christian, your your desire to take action, has brought you to our page (“faith without works – is dead”) James 2:26.
VOLUNTEERING: This can be done up close in Fiji or from a distance via fund raising events, financial support, offering other services according to your talents and abilities. Any and every way is welcome!
It is said`Be the change you wish to see in the world’. That change in the world, must begin within the individual; to be better and do better as physical and spiritual beings. The world revolves around concepts of Justice, Fairness and Equality but for marginalized people; poverty, ill health and violence are intangible ideals. Many adults and children are not given the opportunities to reach their full potential, in addition circumstances beyond their control prevent them from having educational opportunities (that can give hope and bring about change).
We become deeply motivated when we see the difference we make in the lives of children and the hope we give their parents and families for a better world through quality education and loving care.
Empowerment, sustainability, faith, hope and love is our vision. The most important of these being love, not as a noun but as a verb – a ‘doing’ word.
The power and ability to love unconditionally is within us all, it does not come from us, but it is within us and our vision is that it can be translated and illuminated into the act of praxis and service to others.
