"Miss World Fiji in 2012 has decided to raise awareness on the importance of Mental Health in Fiji. This 'Beauty with a Purpose' initiative was decided after alarming figures showed that Fiji had the highest rates of Suicide in the South Pacific. Miss Fiji - Koini Elesi Vakaloloma has also been an advocate for Mental Health and its awareness having made regular visits to work with the survivors of mental health, educating students in high schools as well as orphanages where she is a regular visitor often taking children, sweet treats.

To date, Koini has made lunch and helped serve it for the Psychiatric Survivors of one of Fiji's Mental Health NGO's, help teach mental health survivors to make art as well as continue to advocate for the importance of mental health in Fiji and the awareness to help remove the stigma against it. During the recent devastating floods that destroyed 2 of Fiji's towns and ruined thousands of lives, Koini was also involved in the preparation and delivery of flood relief supplies to the many homeless citizens. She is also a strong advocate for neglected animals and to date has adopted 3 animals from the rescue shelter - a dog named 'sina' and two cats - 'coco' and 'milo'.


As part of the campaign to educate and support users and survivors of mental health systems in Fiji, Koini is working towards raising enough money to open Fiji's first Respite Center that will cater to the homeless street dwellers, sex workers, transgenders, and neglected mental health patients and survivors in Fiji. She is also campaigning to help reduce with the cases of suicides in our island nation."
