About Us

THE REALITY

There are currently 850 primary and secondary schools, some of which are run by the government and some by religious organizations. Law does not require school attendance, but most children go to elementary school, a good portion also receive some part of a secondary education. Although government-funded schools are legally required to be mixed race, in rural areas, de- facto segregation often leads to isolated, single race classrooms. Village schools normally consist of one room in which a single teacher does her best to educate 20 students. In towns, class sizes are often 50:1 Due to poverty, around 20% of children in villages miss out on primary education altogether! It’s suggested that poverty, school fees, child labor practices, poor quality of education, distance from schools and the HIV pandemic are the major factors which keep children in Fiji from receiving a quality education.

Cross Cultural Events

To facilitate the donations we receive, SOS teamed up with a leading overseas travel company. After many successful years of group events, Unleashed Travel wanted to give back to the people of Fiji and Vanuatu. These local people opened up their hearts and their lives for the Unleashed guests and crew, creating lifelong memories on their School Leavers Vacation. To help co-ordinate this Project Unleashed was formed, and at the end of each year SOS send thousands of dollars worth of new and used sporting/educational equipment over to the islands with hundreds of School Leaving Students from both Australia and New Zealand. From there we organize a massive Cross Cultural Event every year, which hosts Song, Dance and Sport, plus a whole lot of laughter!

Unmistakable smiles of kids

There's nothing quite like a Fijian smile to brighten your day. Especially when it comes from a child. You can imagine how many hearts are melted on our trips! That’s why we are so passionate about helping the youth of today. As an international charity we have a huge social responsibility to help our neighbouring countries. Within their communities there are loads of under privilaged children desperately seeking a sustainable environment and resources to facilitate the growth of education and sport.

More rewarding than we ever dreamed

So what have we done so far? SOS has positively influenced over 300 schools and 80 different social and sports clubs in Fiji and Vanuatu. That equates to over 2000 school children! But we want to do more!!! So help us hit our goal of empowering over 1 million youth through sport and fitness by 2018
