PROJECT BACKGROUND: The Fiji Rotahomes project started in March 1985 by the Rotary Club of Lautoka Fiji, following cyclones that devastated large areas of Fiji and left thousands homeless in the Lautoka and Ba areas.
The Rotahomes village (also known as Koroipita) is an on-going Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) supported project to build low cost cyclone resistant housing, with the aim to provide permanent accommodation for disadvantaged, displaced and homeless families which are currently living in squalid conditions.
The first town constructed as part of Phase one (K1) involved 85 homes. Phase two (K2) which is funded by New Zealand Aid Program and Fiji Government, will involve the construction of a further 164 homes over a 5 years timeline. The basic homes are timber framed and steel cladding, each with 1 or 2 rooms, a kitchen, shower and a separate small toilet block.
The success of this RAWCS project has been mainly due to the constant flow of Rotary volunteers who have significantly reduced the cost of building these houses estimated at around $A5million by the time the project is completed.
