Haley Wilson

Mark Norris – Nipissing University

“This trip was an amazing experience. It gave me the opportunity to see the world from a new perspective. The people I met were some of the nicest in the world. Thank you to the tour leaders, host families and trip organizers. I would love the opportunity to work with everyone in the future.”

Daniel Pott – St. John York University

“Amazing trip. Loved the villages and proud of the work we did.”

Alex Sferrazza – McMaster University

“The village stay was beyond anything I could have hoped for. I learned so much about Fijian culture and everyday life. I will never forget my stay with my second family.”

Adrianne MacGowan – Grant MacEwan University

“It was a great trip! The leaders were friendly and made you feel welcome right from the beginning. The tour of Suva was great! The village was amazing and so welcoming. The family made you feel right at home. I love my Fijian family! So great! Each island had its own charm and own uniqueness.”

Becky Calnan – Portsmouth University

“Fiji is beautiful with wonderful, friendly people – the village was perfect and we were looked after so well. It was brilliant to fully be immersed in their way of life. I could have stayed a lot longer. It was a delight to have so much work to do on the projects. We left behind so very valuable renovations and changes. The islands were spot on. Fantastic accommodations and awesome activities. A shame it’s over so quickly. Thank you so much!”

Adrienne Dechief

“This was an amazing experience. It was amazing to be with the family and that was the best way to truly discover the Fijian culture and appreciate what we have in Canada. I would recommend this to everyone at home, as this is truly a once in a lifetime experience and truly awesome.”

LeAnna Kalvi – Lethbridge University

“I had the best time of my life in Fiji!!! An experience that I’ll never forget.”

Makyla Moen – Brandon University

“My experience with VESA is something I will never forgot. I had a great time meeting new friends and creating new memories. The Fijians are some of the friendliest people I have met and I am glad I could do just a small part to make a difference in their lives. Thanks VESA for this opportunity.”

Shelby Weston – Victoria University

“It was a great experience to help people in a Fijian village and having the opportunity to meet so many great people. The tour leaders were very friendly and were very supportive when we needed it most!”

Monique Biady – University of Sydney

“Absolutely loved it! There were bits that were rough, parts that I found difficult and parts I was incredibly daunted by- but this made it an exponentially more rewarding experience. Learnt so much about the Fijian culture and way of life. Personally though, the best part was making such incredible friendships- both on tour and within the family.”

Sarah McCrostie – University of Otago

“The Fiji Islands program has been such an incredible experience. I have loved every minute of it- from the village experience, school kids and kava to the awesome island activities. Thanks so much for an experience I will never forget. I have made some great friendships with both villagers and volunteers. Good luck for future programs. I hope all of the volunteers can get the same fulfilment and enjoyment that I received.”
