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.

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.
