Tiliva Village District school #1320 is located in Tiliva Village on Kadavu Island, Fiji, and supports 70 children from the ages of 7 through 15. Your Stay at Tiliva Resort helps the neighboring villages through hosted medical and humanitarian aid trips to the island, but more specifically we ask all our guest to take school supplies to help Tiliva District schools. The economics of the island make it hard for a family to provide for all the needs for the students. Your Pack for a Purpose donation helps the children of Kadavu Island to succeed.

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
