In the far northeast corner of Vanua Levu, Fiji's northern island, lies the Tunuloa Peninsula and here we find the beautiful but remote village of Koroivonu. Home to approximately 1,000 people, this village may be accessed by a long three hour bus ride from the main port town of Savusavu. Farming and fishing continues to be an integral part of survival. Crops such as taro, cassava, sweet potatoes, coconuts, kava and small vegetable gardens can be found throughout the village. Though technology has arrived here, life in the village is quiet and un-hurried. Family time is priority; you may find the women baking homemade bread over an open fire, hear the pounding of the tapa, see the weaving of mats men playing a game of rugby, the hitting of a volleyball, children's laughter in the air, and the elders sitting and having a cup of tea. Koroivonu, where relationships and friendships are made. Here is where the vision begins.
