Pasifika microcredit

Micro-credit loans are made of a small amount of money that are borrowed by trusted applicants. This start-up amount of money is used by the applicants to create a business and generate further income. Applicants make repayments to their loan, so the amount can be reused for other applicants.

The Pasifika Microcredit initiative was officially launched in Papua New Guinea in January 2020. Applicants will attend an introductory workshop to learn valuable skills for their business.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Located in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, PNG, Samoa and Fiji, the centres provide women with an opportunity to gain skills and support their families economically. The sewing centre in the Solomon Islands grew into a tailor shop.

Reusable menstrual pads for PNG

Partnered with Days for Girls (Wandin Chapter) to deliver reusable menstrual pads to Papua New Guinea. 

Under conditions of limited funding, especially in rural areas, many young women simply have no access to sanitary products and are forced to miss school to stay home during their period. As a result, they can miss up to one month of school every year. In fact, girls are overall more likely to be out of school compared to boys (source).

With this delivery of reusable pads we are creating an opportunity for your women to stay in school and continue their education. This delivery includes educational sessions to inform young women about their period and break down stereotypes and stigma associated with them.
