It treats all people with respect and embraces multi-culturalism. It empowers individuals and communities to contribute to a compassionate, prosperous and just Fiji.

HISTORY OF FCOSS

FCOSS was set up as a charitable organization in 1957 to provide relief and welfare to the vulnerable and marginalized in Fiji. The inaugural meeting of FCOSS was on March 14, 1960.

The organization learned a more sustainable approach was needed to lift people out of poverty. It established programs to facilitate international donor money for community-based organizations to conduct training, preventative health care, project management, community development and basic social service. Between 1980 and 2005, FCOSS facilitated almost $15million in grants from international donor agencies for health, education, social services and to develop community and human resources.

FCOSS has developed into a national civil society organization building the capacity of CSOs, individuals and communities to foster a better world for those who face disadvantage and poverty.
