About the project
In the last two years, BIRTH Fiji has experienced an increase in the number of referral cases of people suffering from mental health, abuse, depression, discrimination caused by various crises. With limited resources, BIRTH Fiji continued to provide holistic support to clients such as counseling, home visitation and equipping people with tools to cope and heal from trauma.
To address the increasing number of referral cases from stakeholders, BIRTH Fiji through this funding from the Fund will implement Organisational Strengthening project. The project will enable BIRTH Fiji to develop policies and standard operating procedures to deliver their activities more effectively.
BIRTH Fiji will collaborate with Civil Society Partners (CSOs) and government departments to implement this project.
