ABOUT 1460 volunteers have entered the country to engage in community outreach programs organised by Projects Abroad Fiji.

The South African organisation which has outlets worldwide has been in operation for five years.

Celebrating its fifth anniversary, the organisation has allowed volunteers from Europe, the US and other countries to experience the Fijian lifestyle.

PAF manager Karishma Nandan said ever since the group opened its doors in 2009, volunteers had been pouring into the country in the hope of experiencing a different way of living.

"Since 2009, 1000 plus international volunteers have graced our shores through Projects Abroad bringing their dedication to work with children and people of Fiji," she said.

"Apart from volunteers' dedication towards our projects, they have contributed to our tourism industry by promoting Fiji as a home away from home."
