Believe Campaign Grows, Long-Term Development Focus
As part of the Believe campaign, a night of celebration was held as the Valelevu grounds last year.

 

After a successful Believe Campaign last year, the Be­lieve Team from Australia will visit Fiji again in August this year when it will bring more than 500 participants this time.

With a focus on sustainable and long-term development in the spheres of leadership, business, education, health and the church, the Believe Campaign aims to bring about positive impact to communi­ties in various countries.

Joey Poh from the Believe Team said the group would arrive in Fiji on August 27 and stay on until Sep­tember 8.

“The campaign was always de­signed to start with a two-year plan, which is why we had brought a smaller team in 2018 to help establish a platform for our pro­grammes,” she said.

“This sets us up to bring the large team in 2019 to continue the work we have begun.

“Our commitment to Fiji is long-term as we partner with local or­ganisations to bring about sustain­able development.”

The teams will also conduct mo­tivational and leadership pro­grammes in primary and secondary schools, hospitals and a Leadership Summit for leaders both in the pri­vate and public sectors among oth­er activities.

“We are still in talks with the Min­istry of Education, but with the overwhelmingly positive response from 2018, we are hoping to target up to 100 primary & secondary schools across two weeks in the re­gions of Suva, Nausori, Lautoka, Nadi, Ba and Labasa,” Ms Poh said.

As a leading project partner, in­ternationally renowned band Plan­etshakers will also be performing during a grand night celebration as part of the campaign.
