Join the Trek for Rights to create brighter futures for women and girls in Fiji

Fiji is rich in lush scenery with a vibrant traditional culture, and you will experience what makes this country unique on this exciting 9-day adventure. From its picturesque villages to its spectacular mountain views, this adventure takes you beyond the beaches, into the heart of Fiji.

Beginning in Suva, you’ll learn more about the work of UN Women on our project visit, as well as how your funds make it possible for us to create brighter futures for women and girls.

As we venture inland you’ll discover a captivating landscape of pristine rainforest, glittering rivers and dramatic peaks that tower over the green rolling hills. You also have the opportunity to take on the once volcanic Mount Tomanivi and be rewarded with glorious panoramic views as far as the Yasawa Islands. Immerse yourself in the peaceful surroundings, marvel at the neatly built traditional bures and learn about native plants and how the locals use them for medicine and handicrafts.

As nightfall descends, you will sleep in traditional villages, enjoying meals and sharing stories with the locals. It is here you will get to experience genuine Fijian hospitality—leaving with friends, memories and stories that will last a lifetime.

Join the Trek for Rights to create brighter futures for women and girls in Fiji

Pacific women and girls face many challenges to being full and equal participants in their communities.

The Pacific is not only home to some of the highest rates of violence against women and girls in the world but also to some of the lowest levels of women’s participation in leadership and decision-making.

One of the ways your fundraising makes a difference is through UN Women’s Markets for Change program. This program is designed to significantly reduce the risk of sexual and physical violence against women who have stalls in the marketplace, reduce the likelihood of theft, strengthen the economic role that women have in their family and community, reduce poverty, and help women to participate in decision making processes that affect them.

All funds raised will support UN Women’s work empowering women and girls across the Pacific through leadership training, financial literacy and work to end violence.

  • $34 can provide a woman with financial literacy training materials
  • $162 helps a market vendor’s collective to promote their produce to local hotels and resorts
  • $900 can provide financial literacy and business training for six women, allowing them to run their business independently
  • $1,216 light up a marketplace to improve women’s safety at work
  • $2,375 can provide three months of workshops for a community of rural farming women to help them grow more food and establish sustainable businesses
