with national and provincial governments, civil society, community-based organisations, community
groups and grassroots champions.

community stories, long-form features and social media, and have interest/ability in producing
photography and short videos, with the support of cChange’s media team in Suva, Fiji.

communications training workshops targeted at local partners and community champions, and
