A word from our volunteers

Ben

"Going and serving in Fiji was a massive wake up call to my Christian life. The Fijian people are so happy and grateful for all that they have."

Andy

"The best part of serving on teams in Fiji is taking each of my five kids to work alongside me and inspire the next generation of volunteers. My oldest daughter Lucy is now training as a nurse with the goal to return and serve."

Murray and Anne

"We find it very fulfilling to be part of an MMM team in Fiji for three reasons: 1 - We serve our Lord Jesus by helping others who belong to Him. 2 - We see other Christians, especially poor folk, having their practical needs met. 3 - We benefit greatly from having a working holiday, some hard work, a lot of fun, and seeing the smiles on the faces of Christians of other cultures."

Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not a practical person, can I work on an MMM project?

Anyone with a willing heart can serve with MMM Fiji. There will always be a skilled team leader and/or volunteers on a project which makes it easy for you to have great learning opportunities. So men or women, young or old, skilled or unskilled - all are welcome.

What does 'MMM' stand for?

Mobile Mission Maintenance was the original name given to MMM. Today, the legal name of MMM in Fiji is 'MMM (Fiji)'. 

​Do you organise trips or other recreational activities on projects?

Yes! Most projects are over at least a two week period and the middle weekend is a perfect opportunity to get out and about. The aim of the trip is always to complete the project, but of course we want you to make the most of the opportunity while you can. 

What does a typical day look like

A usual MMM Fiji work day is 7.30am-5pm, Monday through Friday. We aim to make the most of the cooler mornings and evenings and can be more flexible during the day. However, we are all volunteers and if you just need to put your feet up and rehydrate for a bit, then we won't dock any of your pay! Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided onsite.
At the end of each morning tea we have a time of sharing a short Christian devotion and prayer.

What can I pray for the ministry of MMM?

MMM has a monthly prayer list that is sent out called 'Prayer Force,' if you would like to receive the Prayer Force and be a part of this vital ministry contact the MMM Fiji office.

How many people live in Fiji?

The 2017 census found that the permanent population of Fiji was 884,887, with the latest projections putting it over 907,000. Between 1879 and 1916, Fiji's British colonial rulers brought 61,000 Indian people as indentured labourers (to work on Fiji's sugarcane plantations) which grew to 51 percent of the total population in 1966. Today's data shows Indigenous Fijians make up 56.8 percent of the population and increasing, Indo-Fijians make up 37.5 percent and decreasing, while other groups, including Europeans and Chinese, make up 5.7 percent. Religiously, Fiji is a mixed society with most people being Christian (64.4% of the population), with a Hindu (27.9%) and Muslim (6.3%) minority, according to the 2007 census. Religion tends to split along ethnic lines, with most Indigenous Fijians being Christian and most Indo-Fijians being either Hindu or Muslim.

What about Covid?

Fiji offers quarantine-free travel to fully vaccinated tourists from Travel Partner countries. See the Fiji Travel website for all the latest travel requirements. Check official websites for information about returning to your home country, like this one for New Zealand. All the latest Fiji statistics, advisory and press release statements are updated frequently by the Ministry of Health.

How can I apply for assistance on my project?

Before you start applying for a project at your ministry, we want to hear your story, your heart for ministry and of course some details about the project. On the Contact Page, send us some information about the who/what/when/where/why and how MMM Fiji's support would expand your ministry. If you would prefer to talk this through with us, leave your contacts with us and we will be in touch to discuss it further.

Who pays for what?

If you are a volunteer on a project, you pay all your expenses through MMM including any transport, accommodation, insurance and food costs. A two week return trip from Auckland can cost approximately NZD$1800 - $2000 (March 2022).
If we are working on your project, you need to pay for all the materials, work with MMM Fiji to prepare morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea for the team, provide local volunteers to assist with the work if possible and host all the MMM Fiji volunteers. This can include men, women, children and families. Past work groups have been up to 20 people. 

Do I need to bring tools?

It's a good idea to have your own tool belt and basic tools if you have them. If you have experience with or access to cordless drills or impact drivers they will also be well used on most projects. However MMM Fiji has a good range of all tools in Fiji already and there are a limited amount of spare tool belts also. Any other specific tool needs for projects will be discussed leading up to the trip.

How hot is it in Fiji?

Fiji has a warm tropical climate with maximum temperatures rarely moving out of the 26°C to 31°C range all year round. Southeast trade winds from May to October bring dry weather and the rainy/hurricane season runs from November to April.
