More about Fiji Volleyball Federation

The Pacific Volleyball Partnership (PVP) program aims to reduce the risk of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) through increased village level participation in the sport of volleyball, focusing on women and girls.

The PVP targets women in villages in Rewa province, on the outskirts of Suva. All participants are of Itaukei heritage (traditional Fijian) and range from age 17 to 85. The reasons the program specifically targets women and girls are twofold: twice as many women than men are obese and women lack safe and accessible opportunities to participate in sport and/or physical activity.

Rather than FVF providing one-off opportunities to play volleyball through come and try days or school sessions like other national sporting organisations, the PVP is more concerned with facilitating a transformation in behaviour and lifestyle through the domains of diet and physical activity. Additionally the significant investment in communities better reflects the overarching objective of reducing NCDs.
