We met three years ago in Fiji, and it transformed both of our lives!

Fiji's natural culture allows you to discover your inner happiness.
Laurens has always preferred to stay at a bed and breakfast. As a result, he met a family who lived on the most beautiful island, 4 hours away from the mainland. Laurens had only intended to remain for two weeks but ended up staying for six months. Laurens lived in their culture and family for six months and has been a part of their family ever since.

Claudia was in Suva, Fiji, to volunteer at a local school. Claudia fell in love with Fiji and wanted to visit the lovely islands once her volunteer job was completed.

And it was on this island, where Laurens was staying with a Fijian family, that Claudia and Laurens met.


Not only is Fiji a special place for each of us, but it is also a special place because it was where we met on the other side of the world. 


The COVID-19 situation has wreaked havoc on Fiji and the rest of us. The family in Fiji survives on tourism, which has been virtually non-existent since March 2020.

They are frugal and don't require much. The tremendous storm and tsunami nearly destroyed their investment in food, which consisted of seeds and plants.


With every order of Vegan Pecan, we donate 50 cents to our Fijian community.

The funds will be used to purchase clean drinking water, food, and the ability for the children to return to school.
