My story

[p]Bula Vinaka and welcome to our SNORKEL CHALLENGE! [/p][p]Arranged and planned by one of our fabulous interns, see her story below about this fabulous event she is arranging. [/p][p] [/p][p]ABOUT:[/p][p]I’m Jana, 20 years old and from Germany. Currently I’m volunteering for the Marine Conservation Project from GVI in Fiji. Our base is on a small island called Caqalai. We’re doing Long Term Monitoring Surveys for inverts, benthic and fish. We are also working together with the community of Moturiki. Moturiki is the island next to us, the people live in small villages all along the coastline. They have a school there for which I’m doing this challenge. [/p][p] [/p][p]QUALITY EDUCATION[/p][p]One of the SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals) GVI is working on. [/p][p]How our planet will look like depends on the creativity and knowledge of the next generations. It is in their hands if they will destroy or protect the planet, not in ours. To prepare them for the responsibility they will have, children need to get a good education. Not only about subjects, but also in how to build their own opinions, how to speak up for themselves and how to stay inspired. [/p][p] [/p][p] THEME:[/p][p] “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.”[/p][p] [/p][p] THE CHALLENGE: [/p][p]I created a challenge for Caqalai volunteers, interns, staff along with the local community members. We are going to snorkel from the island Caqalai to Moturiki and back which is about 2 miles. To include the pupils, I went to the school and asked them to write down what they ‘d like to have to improve their learning regarding marine education. [/p][p]From this session we discussed items they would like to see in their school along with things they would like to learn about. [/p][p]These “wishes” have been placed into a coconut and will be presented to our intern Jana to bring back to base on the day of the snorkel challenge and we will create a marine education day here on Caqalai based on these wishes. [/p][p]Everything you donate will be used in making the wishes come true. Every dollar counts![/p][p] Vinaka![/p]
