  • Comment by Kiatoa Ruaia on Roslyn Clarke – Water and sanitation in Kiribati
    "Thank you Roslyn and Tom for your time and great effort in helping communities in Kiribati with their projects - sanitation and tamana pump.

    I am currently working with the island council of Maiana as an Island project officer (IPO). I will be very grateful to have your email contact and looking forward to seek advice from both of you particularly in documenting a project proposal.

    Let me know when you visit Kiribati again so that I can arrange a special tour of the island (Maiana) and Choir gathering with a bowl of kava.

  • Comment by Frances on Kate Kan-Shaw - helping people with disabilities in Samoa
    "Hi Kate
    It is neat to read your account of your VSA year in Samoa and especially to see the growth of Lotto Taumafai. My time in Samoa was in 2004, when my husband worked on a road design project. I discovered the school and spent 6 months in the classrooms as a volunteer occupational therapist. What a great boost for the staff to move into new school buildings. Talofa" - Frances
  • Comment by Donna Flavell on Dianne Hambrook - building tourism resilience in Vanuatu
    "There are 4 of us going to Vanuatu and Tanna Island on August 17th 2016. We will probably have 40kg of spare luggage between us
    We would like collect and take donated items to Tanna Island that are needed by the children and Women.
    Could you please let me know or put us in contact with someone who can let us know what items are required and who to meet with and hand over to once we get there.
    We were thinking pens/pencils/books/pads/clothes etc. or open to other suggestions.

    Looking forward to your response so we can start to collecting
