ADRA was incorporated in Fiji as a Charitable Trust on 15 June, 1995 with its own constitution. Since its incorporation, ADRA Fiji was primarily engaged in partnering with communities in implementing infrastructural development such as water and sanitation projects, the building of community halls, the laying of footpaths and building bridges across rivers and streams in villages and settlements.
It was also involved in disaster relief activities notably during cyclones and localised flooding. However, between 2001 and 2005, there was a hiatus in ADRA's work programs for various reasons, and ADRA Fiji was dormant until the end of 2005 when the decision was taken to restart the activities of ADRA within Fiji.
To date ADRA Fiji has been operating as a full time country office since the beginning of 2006.
ADRA Fiji's key strategic goal as identified in the plans are as follows:
Developing and fostering relationships with key stakeholders;
Undertaking a whole of community approach in our work;
Engaging with our communities using clients focused methodologies;
Being active in disaster relief activities;
The use of entrusted resources with honesty and integrity
