Fiji

Education Sector

In July of 2018, the SolarSPELL team launched a pilot phase in Fiji, equipping Peace Corps volunteers and local teachers, across four schools, with SolarSPELL digital libraries. We plan to return early next year (2019) for a training with a full cohort of volunteers and their local counterparts, and thus to introduce the SolarSPELL libraries to schools across Fiji. On a recent visit, the team found remarkable the level of importance placed on addressing climate change, and how widespread the knowledge is of this problem. Fiji Peace Corps volunteers work in the Youth Development sector.
