One drop, one ocean, one world... together we can make it happen.

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”

-Ryunosuke Satoro


"YOU" are making it happen...

Our project manager, Ben Sorensen uploaded some photos of  the Navuatu water project we are doing in Fiji.  Please forgive me for making this personal, but Wananavu Kadavu is very personal to me and my family.

Ben Sorensen is my oldest son and I just want you to know how proud I am of him and the work he is doing in Fiji. Little did I know a trip to Fiji would change our lives forever.

Ok, so I'm his mom but that doesn't stop it from being something great. He has invested in Wananavu Kadavu and the people of Fiji. The crew of our 2 projects to date have become family, he lives with them and works with them. So Ben, kudos to you. From now on when I hear "pay it forward" I'll think of Ben, the people who work shoulder to shoulder with you and all those who have believed in us. How easy it would have been to return home to Utah never to look back...  the journey we would have missed.

As I've been looking at his photos of our Navuatu crew, I cried. I'm so proud of Ben, so proud of the work he is doing. He didn't do it alone, our family didn't do it alone, there is no "I" in doing something like this it's "WE". People from all around the world are making it happen, a stranger on a plane, old friends, new friends this wouldn't be happening without "YOU", so vinaka vakalevu, danke schon, merci beaucoup, arigato gozaimasu, obrigada, muchas gracias and thank you thank you thank you!!

Ben and Scott made the decision to stay in Fiji to do this work, we said we'd do our best to make it happen and in the end "YOU" made it happen, together we can make big changes to make our world a better place for all to live.

Every person who has helped make this happen is "Wananavu Kadavu", wananavu means everything is set, that being said we can continue working...

One village at a time, together we can...

Why Water?

Health and sanitation.

Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of diseases and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren't strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.

90% of the 42,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are to children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation.

Starting our second water project on the Island of Kadavu, Fiji Islands

Members of the Board of Directors of Wananavu Kadavu as well as some of our friends and supporters are coming to Fiji in April, each brining their own experience and talents that they are offering to contribute to the benefit of the community. While in Fiji we are planning to complete the Wananavu Kadavu Water Project. Additionally, while in Fiji we would like to contribute other services to the Kadavu community. Please find below a summary of our members our Broad and our supporters who will be participating in our April 2010 trip and their areas of expertise:

Serena Martineau, who has been part of Wananavu Kadavu from the very start, has offered many hours to our water project. As a talented artist and photographer, she will also be involved in the following:

- Teaching the children or whoever would like to be involved, to hand paint on canvas. We will then be bringing these canvases back to the States to be auctioned off, and all monies received will go back into the funds for the Wananavu Kadavu project

- taking photographs of Kadavu that will be auctioned off, with all proceeds to be used  for the Wananavu Kadavu  project.

- providing help for the Wananavu Kadavu project in any way possible and will be bringing over supplies such as clothing and educational items.

The multi-talented Dexter Taylor whose background includes experience as a successful business owner, handyman, and magician, has offered to be involved in the following efforts:

- Offering to give advice and tips on improving and economizing in the Village.

- Helping build and repair anything of need.

- Dexter has been a professional magician for over 35 years and has offered to put on a magic show for the people of  Kadavu.

- Willing to help in any way needed.

- Bringing building supplies, anti-bacterial ointment,  first aid supplies.

Heinz Mahler, our legal adviser will be joining us later in April to assist with completing the water project construction.

As founder of Wananavu Kadavu I will bring with me building supplies for the next water project and clothing for the Fijian families we have grown to love. I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and enjoying the delicious food they prepare.

While we are in Fiji we will be working closely with Ben Sorensen who has been our project manager working in Fiji since 2009. Through his many hours of service working side-by-side with community we completed our first project to bring better drinking water to the village of Nuku. We are now preparing for our second water project on the island of Kadavu during our April 2010 stay in Fiji we will begin. Without Ben's hard work and dedication to Wananavu Kadavu, our friends in Kadavu and Fiji and friends around the world who have given financial support, shelter, food, this project would not have been possible.
I would also like to thank Scott Sorensen for his dedication, time and skills in helping to start the Wananavu Kadavu project as well as his continued support of our efforts.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or would like to help with our on going efforts to bring safe drinking water to the people of Fiji.
Your friends at Wananavu Kadavu
