Malo e lelei!
My name is LJ Pritchard, and I was fortunate enough to be accepted by VSA (Volunteer Service Abroad) to volunteer in Tonga for a sustainable rural development project. The project strives toward tackling the country’s biggest issues by contributing to poverty alleviation, economic growth and climate action. My role in the project is specifically to provide technical knowledge in horticulture to strengthen and empower smallholder farmers toward sustainable food production and environmental resilience.
Whilst VSA is sponsored by the government, VSA still needs to fundraise 10% of the costs of each volunteer to go on their respective assignments. So, on behalf of VSA and the Tongan community, I ask you to help achieve my project goal by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button, to reach my target of $1,000. Also, the more people that know about VSA, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
