My Story

My wife Carol and I are heading to the Solomon Islands with Volunteer Service Abroad (“VSA”) on 20th May for 6 months. I will take up a role as Finance Systems Trainer/Mentor role with Kokonut Pacific SI, a social enterprise promoting rural livelihoods. I will be developing a financial processes manual and training staff to manage and maintain the financial systems.

The Solomon Islands ranks among the 30 poorest countries in the world. Some of you will have read the article in the latest CAANZ journal on the subject of sustainable development goals. This role addresses (in a small way) 3 of these goals being the alleviation of poverty and hunger and promoting work and economic growth.

VSA works in partnership with MFAT which covers a significant portion of the work but VSA is required to cover 10% of the in-country costs for each volunteer. VSA therefore asks volunteers to raise $1,000 each – a small portion of our assignment cost – to help pay it forward for future volunteers.
