Naitauba from the sea

Support Naitauba Self-Sufficiency in the Context of the Pandemic

Fiji is currently experiencing a very serious outbreak of the Delta variant of Covid-19. The outbreak significantly reduces our capability to procure food, materials, parts, and equipment in Suva. Our Suva office has been closed, with some staff working from home. Passenger travel from Suva to the outer islands, including Taveuni, is currently prohibited, although some cargo vessels are still operating on an erratic schedule. This situation calls for a significant improvement of self-sufficiency on Naitauba. Current urgent projects include: improving the capability to obtain fresh produce in Taveuni; increasing freezer capacity on Naitauba; chartering a barge to deliver vital materials, resources, and fuel from Suva; and expanding stocks of critical spare parts for heavy machinery, water pumps, generators, internet and communications equipment, etc. We welcome any contributions to support self-sufficiency on Naitauba at this crucial time.

Power from the Sun

Naitauba on Solar Power

Solar energy is vital to the future of Naitauba. We intend to increase Naitauba's self-sufficiency and participate in the worldwide campaign to protect the Earth by minimizing our dependence on fossil fuels. A successful pilot project was launched in 2009 and we are planning to build a much larger project in 2019. When completed this project will reduce our use of fossil fuels by half. If you can help support the development of solar power on Naitauba, please contact Cornel Naumann via the contact form for more information.


reef from the air

Naitauba Reef Preservation

The Naitauba reef is of extraordinary beauty. Last year, a research team from the Univerity of the South Pacific studied the reef to assess and monitor the status of the reef. For ongoing monitoring there is the need to install research-quality data loggers to record ocean temperatures in and around Naitauba's reef. For more information go to www.naitaubareef.org off-site or contact David Forsythe via the contact form.


Temple Adi Da on Naitauba Island

Adi Da Samrajashram Temples

Defibrillator for Clinic

Equipment for the Naitauba Clinic

The clinic provides essential medical and emergency services for all Naitauba residents, retreatants, staff, and their families.  We also help with occasional emergencies for people from nearby islands.  We go to great lengths to care for our vital equipment, and all of the units have life-cycles requiring periodic replacement or upgrade.  For more information about current needs, please contact the clinic physicians Charles Seage, MD or Andrew Dorfman, MD, or the island manager Chris Merz, or via the contact form. We very much value your support. 


Support Naitauba's scholarship program

Since 2005 devotees of Adi Da Samraj have sponsored a scholarship program which enables ten children from Ciqomi and a neighboring island to attend secondary school for up to 5 years. This program is known and admired throughout Fiji, and in addition to enhancing the lives and opportunities of the children involved and their families, very positively serves Naitauba's reputation and standing in the local area  and nationally.  If you would like to contribute to this program, contact Hanneke Vlaar via the contact form.


Specialized Skills and Expertise

If you have special skills in areas such as self-sufficiency, island and reef ecology, organic gardening or environmental protection, we invite you to contact island manager Chris Merz via the contact form about how you may be of service to Naitauba Island.
