EVENT DATE Oct 24, 2014

THE STORY:

Vuya has been working together as a community for the past 3 years toward several sustainable development goals. Electrification is a major project they are almost close to achieving.

The Fijian government has asked that they contribute 5% of the total project cost, which amounts to $34,000FJD (~$18,500USD), before work can begin. The village has worked to raise over $25,000FJD since January this year. They only have a short amount of time left to raise the remaining funds.

It takes just $270FJD (or $150 USD) to bring electricity to one household. This is a major burden for many families who are struggling to meet basic needs. Electricity will bring many new opportunities to Vuya and increase the standard of living.

As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer from Vuya, I am trying to raise a small fund on their behalf to help them meet their goal. Any donation will go a long way to helping light up Vuya!

Vinaka vakalevu for your support!
