The Genda Project is an initiative to motivate individuals through storytelling and sharing of ideas to realise their potential to expand, says founder and curator Sharon Narayan.

“I set-up this initiative to enable people to venture out of their comfort zones, discover the possibilities and connect to their own selves,” said Ms Narayan.

Ms Narayan said she started this initiative in 2015 to inspire Fijians to pursue happiness and to utilise potential in Fiji rather than migrating overseas for greener pastures.

The word “Genda” comes from the Hindi word of marigold flower.

She hopes to inspire people through the Genda Project to realise that opportunities begin when individuals start defining who they are as a person and discovering what makes them truly happy.

The group had organised a Genda Interactions in 2015 and had three live talks last year, one in Nadi and two in Suva.

The themes for each Genda Connection events were Life Stories, Business and Communicate. Speakers were engaged specifically for each assigned theme.

This year they will be launching their first Genda Disrupt event. This will be a live industry talk event and they will be working with the tourism sector on this.

“Our theme for this event is “Innovating Change in Fiji through tourism” and will feature trailblazing speakers from the industry.

Ms Narayan’s professional background is in construction management and she works as a project manager for a local construction company in the West.

She also writes for travel and lifestyle blogs for different websites.

The group targets audience in the business sector and budding entrepreneurs.

The group has a core team of five and is based in Nadi.

“However, we encourage people to attend any of our events because at the core of what we do, is to inspire and motivate you to make better choices in life,” she said.
