Model Town philosophy
Of the land at Koroipita
Shall host a house, a tree or homes for honey bees
There’s room for moths, wasps and tiny beetles too
The soil is safe here
It feeds us and we feed it to
The project seeks to provide welfare and shelter funds and better support the education system at Koroipita Model Towns in Fiji.
Main partners in the project are the Model Towns Charitable Fund, a registered charity in Fiji, and FijiLIFE Foundation Limited, a registered DGR charity in Australia.
The goal of the project is to strengthen the Model Towns prescription that offers important solutions for managing rural/urban drift and for the resettlement of climate change and other refugees. Cost effective safe housing and family advancement in a clean and green environment.
Plans have been presented to increase the housing stock to 386 homes. The population would then increase from the present 1,100 to 1740 residents.
At present there are 1550 families (nearly 7000 people) applying for a home at Koroipita, and there are no vacant houses!
The MTCT Family Advancement Plan (FAP) provides detailed guidance and support to ensure compliance with the community rules and to help the families achieve civic skills and financial independence. The ultimate goal of the plan is to progress each family to home ownership in mainstream communities – that is to move outwards, but upwards as their property gains value.
