It has been nearly 3 years since the destructive hurricane Winston wreaked havoc to thousands of people in Fiji. Gale force winds ripped roofs off homes, destroyed water supplies, uprooted trees and brought down power lines in many places. While some members of the community had their homes and personal property spared, many suffered crippling losses from the storm.

Many schools were very badly damaged and some were completely destroyed. In the wake of Winston, a large sum of money was donated from all over the world to help victims. This fund was given directly to the Fiji Government. Much repair work has been completed but there are many schools that are still waiting for help. Two such rural schools, that the organisers of “Imli Chutney Nite” are aiming to help are Vashist Muni Memorial School in Magere ,Tavua, and Tongo Primary School in Nadi. Three years on, these schools are yet to get Government assistance. 

Vashist Muni Memorial School lost its entire roof (see pictures), and students are currently having classes in tents. The conditions inside these tents are not conducive to an effective teaching and learning environment. During the hot season it gets extremely humid and on rainy days it gets wet and cold. Although the conditions are extremely difficult, there is no shortage of perseverance, willingness and enthusiasm amongst the staff and students. The pictures tell the story of people committed to learning, regardless of their circumstances.  There is lesson in this for all of us - no matter what hardship may come one’s way, one must never stop to smile and laugh. It is estimated that the total cost to re-roof the entire school will be approximately $40,000.

The second school to be assisted from the funds collected is Tongo Primary School in Nadi. To meet the daily costs of running this school the teachers and students have started a vegetable garden project. The money raised from selling vegetables is used to cover day to day running costs. However, one problem the school is facing is that the garden is yet to be completely fenced. As a result, animals are able to enter the garden and regularly destroy vegetables. The organisers of this show will donate approximately $10,000 towards the proper fencing of this garden, so that the students’ efforts are sustainable.

The cost of organising this night has come entirely in the form of donations from our sponsors, and from the many generous people who have bought tickets to the show. All artists performing tonight, including Jimi Nathu and Jagdish Punja (who travelled from Auckland), have donated their time and effort for free. This means that the entire proceeds from this show will go towards helping these two needy schools.

Two more shows will be held in the near future to raise sufficient funds to complete these projects – one  in Auckland and other in Lautoka, Fiji – details of these shows will be available shortly.

We will keep you posted on the money raised during these shows via the Fiji Association web site and Radio 105.3FM.

Project Apna Awaaz

What is this project about? 

This project is an initiative of the Fiji Indian Association Wellington Inc (FIA) to promote safer communities through Education and Awareness Programmes. 

This will involve bringing attitudinal change by encouraging intolerance to all kinds of violence in families, and by ensuring members of our community understand its harm and play their part in preventing it. 

Police statistics tells us that there are many kinds of violence committed on a daily basis. Most can be prevented if we seek help and guidance at an early stage from the experts. 

Family violence impacts on everyone in this country whether they are directly involved or not. It is clearly a public issue. What happens in families affects our neighbourhoods, schools, workplaces and communities. The results of violence in families spread right through society. As children grow up within, and become accustomed to, an environment of violence new generations of New Zealanders bear the consequences.

Family violence has far-reaching social and economic costs. Violence can undermine and destroy individual’s sense of their own worth and a family’s ability to look after and support its members. It can lead to injury, illness, death, and trauma. Lives are wasted and our country is poorer for it in every way. 

But there is hope – family violence is preventable 

Changing the attitudes and the behaviours that have allowed family violence to continue is a priority for our community action. Action to prevent, and ultimately eliminate, family violence needs the co-ordinated efforts of us all. 

Our reward will be a society where people are safe in and outside their homes. Children will grow up in families that are respectful of each member and the benefits of violence-free family life will nourish future generations. 

We will all be better off. 

The aim of this project is to develop volunteers within our community who will be able to provide some initial guidance and direction, on a confidential basis, so that those needing help can reach the experts early. 

 It is our hope that with all your help we will all be able to: 

  • promote the message that violence of any nature is unacceptable

  • increase community awareness and understanding of the nature, causes and effects of various forms and types of violence in families

  • ensure that each person who is aware of situations of violence in families will act promptly and appropriately

  • ensure that people experiencing violence in families are aware of what to do to protect themselves, and where to seek help

  • reduce the impact of violence portrayed in the range of print, film, video, internet and other media

  • promote healthy gender roles and responsibilities, and concept of non-violence


How can you contribute? 

To join the project team, or if you would like to volunteer as a community support person, or you want to know more about this project, please contact the President Mr. Prem Singh on 027 448 1991 or the Secretary Jotishna Sharma on 021 525948 of Fiji Association. We are in the process of getting an expert trainer with the help of Ministry of Social Development to run a workshop for community volunteers very soon. 

APNA AWAAZ poster on this FIA website has some agency contact details where help is available. We will be expanding this list as we come to know more of our communities’ needs. 

Please note that people who want to help with eliminating family violence do not need to be specialists or experts. It is a mission for all of us in our community

The project team is supported by the Government, including the Police and the Ministry of Development (MSD), to develop this resource in the Fiji Indian community.  There are examples of similar projects, supported by the Government, across many community groups in New Zealand now. 

We need your help to make our communities safer.

Convenor and Chairperson
