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.

A Women’s Group in Vanuatu has an existing meeting house that is currently unable to be used at night due to lack of proper lighting.

Currently, women weave mats and baskets and sew clothes in their own homes or kitchens at night, after work in family gardens can no longer be done and children are asleep. This work is often done by kerosene or candle light, sometimes with the aid of a flashlight. Not only will a solar lighting system make it easier for women to see their work, improving quality and production, but the group collaboration will increase shared knowledge and traditional skills. The women aim to sell their handicrafts in local markets, with profits going to both the individuals and the group. In addition, the house is often used as a guest house for overnight visitors to the village, and with good lighting, the women are hoping that they will be able to attract more visitors to the guest house and consequently increase their income.

A Women’s Group in Vanuatu has an existing meeting house that is currently unable to be used at night due to lack of proper lighting. The group would like to acquire a solar lighting system for the house to give them a better source of light for creating handicrafts and to give overnight visitors a source of light.

Currently, women weave mats and baskets and sew clothes in their own homes or kitchens at night, after work in family gardens can no longer be done and children are asleep. This work is often done by kerosene or candle light, sometimes with the aid of a flashlight. Not only will a solar lighting system make it easier for women to see their work, improving quality and production, but the group collaboration will increase shared knowledge and traditional skills.
