The South Pacific Islands Support Project
The New Zealand - South Pacific District of Kiwanis is continuing with our long-standing project to ship containers of school materials and other school related goods (student desks, library books, teaching aids, etc.) to Vanuatu for the children of Vanuatu.  We sometimes struggle to raise enough funds to pay the shipment but we still manage to send one or two containers every year.  The goods are distributed to schools and other institutions in need of the goods by our club in Port Vila, thus ensuring they reach the schools in greatest need.
 
To this end, we appreciate donations of surplus school material and furniture.  Our project manager can be contacted via the webmaster@kiwanis.org.nz to discuss suitability of materials to be donated and delivery/pickup arrangements to our base south of Auckland.
 
The most recent container was packed and shipped in July, 2022.  More about the project can be read here and here.
 
The packing of the container of books and other goods sent to Vanuatu at the end of 2015 and the distribution of the goods in Vanuatu was filmed.
You can watch the video on YouTube here.    Our thanks to the students and teachers of Kristin School in Auckland who filmed and produced the video.
 
The packing of the next container of books and other goods to be sent to Vanuatu will take place on Saturday, 1 October, 2022.  Many hands make light work.  Come along and help out.  Address and times on the district calendar
