Women artisans in this part of Vanuatu have been organized since mid-2006. Currently the women’s group is compromised of approximately 40 women who are working in collaboration with a local fair trade organization. The vast majority of their products are baskets woven from the leaves of the pandanas tree. This provides them with their livelihood and the ability to provide their families with necessities such as soap, matches, food, and school fees. However they have been functioning without adequate facilities since they began. Now this group is facing a growing demand for the center to work in and store all of their products and materials. Pressure increases with the rising interest of more women desiring to take advantage of this opportunity. The leaders of this group have voiced this need and have developed a floor plan for an appropriate building to cater to their needs, as well as those of the women they serve and the entire community. Let’s help them achieve their dream.
==Description of Service ==
 
While working in Lagawe, Ifugao (North Central Luzon) I was assigned to Provincial Agriculture Office/Bureau of Aquatic Resources. This office further detailed me to work with Central Luzon State University as a site manager for a research station doing growth rate verification of Tilapia-Loach pond based polyculture. My primary function was to locate and develop a research station of 14-100 square meter tanks. I was transfered out of this assignment by the Peace Corps Medical Officer as we began our first stocking. The project continued for a number of years after I left.
 
 
 
My final 18 months were spent in Kalibo, Aklan (Central Visayas) where I was again assigned to the Provincial Agriculture Office. My work in Aklan focused on fisheries extension work, where I became active with a local prawn hatcheries and operators cooperative. I spent some time evaluating community based labs in other parts of the Philippines as part of background studies for building a fisheries pathology lab in Kalibo. This lab was awarded a US$250,000 USAID grant but work had not even begun as I approached my Close of Service (COS).
