InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is committed to supporting our local community. Our team have been working with various local stakeholders and organizations since the resort opened in May 2009 and is dedicated to enhancing the lives of people living in Natadola Bay and the surrounding villages.
In previous years, InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa team members have invested Community Care Funds and volunteered to help improve Malomalo Primary School by painting buildings, repairing broken chairs and desks, replacing rusty window frames and installing a new roof. In September 2011, electricity and water were also connected to the school and more notably the construction and opening of a brand-new kindergarten at the school. The FJ$70,000.00 kindergarten project was jointly funded by the Fiji Water Foundation and donations from past resort guests. Designed and built to Australian standards with a ‘jungle theme’, the preschool inspires the children’s imagination outside of their typical environment. The kindergarten now provides preschool education for the children of surrounding areas; Sanasana, Malomalo, Naidiri, and Natadola. Resort guests have also generously donated books, stationery, toys, computers and clothing to the school.
COMMUNITY CARE FUND
Following a temporary pause during the COVID-19 pandemic, InterContinental Fiji Resort & Spa restarted the Community Care Fund on 1 February 2023. Our long-term “Community Care” fund will invest in various community and environmental projects in the area around the resort. Our guests can donate FJ$2.00 per room per night when they stay at the Resort and 100% of funds go towards the continuous improvement of the lives of those who live in Sanasana Village and the community surrounding Natadola Bay.
All Community Care funding will be invested in 4 key areas:
- Environmental Sustainability
The Community Care Fund will be managed by the InterContinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa Sustainability Committee. This committee will include a group of volunteer staff members from most departments at the resort such as Engineering, Housekeeping, Front Office, Food & Beverage, Sales & Marketing, Finance, HR, Security and Activities. The Sustainability Committee will meet once a month to track the progress of initiatives, consider new initiatives and ensure staff members and guests are given the opportunity to participate.
