“The term “prosocial” is associated with a wide range of positive social behaviors, including trust, cooperation, care, empathy, and altruism—all of which are mainstays of forming and maintaining adaptive human social relationships.”

In Fiji, where the communal spirit is a core cultural value, pro-social activities further nurture the sense of ‘Vanua’ – a Fijian term signifying their connection to the land and the people.
- “the people, their traditions and customs, beliefs and values, and the various other institutions established for the sake of achieving harmony, solidarity and prosperity within a particular social context. It provides a sense of identity and belonging. The vanua is an extension of the concept of the self” Asesela Ravuvu, 1983, quoted in: Stephanie Sienkiewicz, “Ethnic relations in Fiji: Peaceful coexistence and the recent shift in the ethnic balance”, Union College Department of Anthropology, June 2000.
Through these activities, individuals forge stronger ties with their surroundings and each other, deepening their sense of belonging and fulfillment.
