Creating a path of economies of hope and equity for rural remote women in Fiji

woman-in-field-1100x500

On many South Pacific islands, luxury and poverty often exist side by side. The divide between rich and poor is never truly bridged by the private sector or government. Impoverished villages sit next to five-star hotels, but there is no formal system for addressing the imbalance of resources. Although some businesses attempt to support nearby villages, funding is directed towards specific projects that rarely result in long-term change.

Government resources are spread thin. In addition, coordinated efforts to harness the potential benefit that outside visitors bring is limited, so neither the vacationers nor community members gain. We see this as an opportunity for RBTR to help.
