Savudrodro VILLAGE FIJI

DESCRIPTION

This 4 or 8 week project, located in Savudrodro Village on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji, will take a team of international volunteers to design, live and build with the local community. Due to rapid climate change, the river running through the village regularly floods. As a result, the entire village will be undergoing re-location to higher ground. The Savudrodro Community Hall will be the first building to be re located just North from where the current village lies. 

We will use the local vernacular combined with the latest natural disaster design guidance, to design a community hall, which is contemporary, practical and robust enough to be able to withstand future floods and natural disasters.
