We help girls in the Pacific Islands get back to school.
We also help their families create income generating projects like sewing machines and fabric for tailoring, veggies to eat and sell, chicken coups for eggs and meat and honey bee boxes for harvest.
We sell their products.

We assist with emergency funds when natural disasters hit (which they do all too often).
We tell stories. Of people’s resilience and resourcefulness. About the power of community and what we can learn from the materially poor. And about how our humanity is bound together by sameness.
Our Strategic Plan for 2012-2015 includes health promotion and multi media story sharing as well as the expansion of our programs to other areas of the Pacific.
We work where our connection to known and trusted volunteers is and we train them to carry out assessments and serve people in their own communities, so groups of people flourish and begin to lift themselves out of cycles of poverty.
We build relationships with key people in the areas where we work; teachers, principals, parents, businesses, agencies and helping networks.
We train ‘Girl Ambassadors’ to generate awareness in their schools about how educating girls can break cycles of poverty, and they run fundraisers.

We partner with wonderful people who want to make a difference and they sponsor girls or income generating projects, and link their businesses or social media influence to the Cause.
