The Vakatabu Communities

Piloted in 18 Fijian Villages

The Vakatabu Project is implemented in 18 indigenous Fijian villages in partnership with the Ministry of Itaukei (indigenous Fijian) Affairs. The 18 villages are geographically spread across nine provinces.

Commencing May, 2023 the Vakatabu project team began visits to village communities in Macuata province namely Yaro Village on Kia Island and Wainiika Village to introduce the project to villagers. 

OF the nine provinces, one, Macuata province is on Vanua Levu, one is a maritime province and the rest on Viti Levu.

The Roko Tui's as provincial caretakers and the village head persons are part of the Vakatabu core coordination team.

In April 2023, the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Itaukei Affairs, launched the Vakatabu programme in the presence of Roko Tui’s, 18 village head persons and partners like the Pacific Conference of Churches, in Suva, Fiji. It marked the start of village visits and consultations.
