GVI Becomes Member of the Fiji LMMA Network
We have been operating in Fiji only since September 2010, when GVI were approached by The Yasawa Trust Foundation to request assistance in achieving their objectives to improve village infrastructure, sustainability, and education in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji.
And since then, we've not looked back!
In April 2011, GVI staff Dan and Leti, and representatives from the Yasawa Trust Foundation and Windsway Construction the program’s first Rainwater Harvesting System was installed with the help of local villagers, increasing water capacity in Nacula village by 10,000 litres. This was soon followed by our membership to the International Rainwater Harvesting Alliance. GVI is the first IRHA member in Fiji.
Besides successfully starting our community and marine conservation programs, we can now add another milestone to an already impressive list by becoming a full member of the Fiji Locally Managed Marine Area Network. Our membership is based on a proven commitment to community based approaches to marine conservation and proof of long term commitment to Fiji’s reefs through the establishment of our year-round marine research program in the Yasawas.
