Nasigasiga Village is 40 miles from the nearest town. The 228 villagers have below-average incomes by Fijian standards. The existing 6,500-gallon water tank built 15 years ago is now insufficient for the growing population. During the dry season there is no longer enough potable water, and the use of contaminated water has become a major health issue.
The village is setting aside 332 acres of primary forest to be protected in perpetuity. Seacology is funding a new water tank for the village.
