Threads Across Pacific – Textile Business Development Workshop in Santo

“Twelve women in Luganville, were very fortunate to access brand new machines and trainers (Caroline Mason of Threads Across Pacific and Janeth Kaltovei) who empowered them with quality sewing techniques and skills and creating new products.  The immediate impact is quite easy to see – demonstrating traits of quality sewing and a significant shift away from the usual textile products towards new product designs aimed at the growing tourist market.  Caroline has inspired and empowered the women in a very special way. Two of these, Vanessa and Ileen live with disabilities.  We are looking forward with excitement to work with these 12 women over the next couple of years.” Kalowie Robert TVET Systems Specialist (National Coordinator – Skills for Handicrafts) Skills For Economic Growth...

Kiwanis meeting’s Guests – 20th September 2016

On our 20th September meeting, we had the pleasure to welcome five very interesting guests. Our first guests Tricia and Williams gave a very interesting presentation on the Met Office’s project to upgrade the Cyclone Tracking Map with further information including drawings. They also bought a sample of a new Emergency Radio, which runs on a 12 volt battery, has solar capacity, can be hand cranked and fully tuned to the correct emergency frequencies . This is a project that Kiwanis may wish to assist with getting these radios into schools and health clinics. Williams invited all Kiwanis members for a tour of the Met Office which will be arranged in the near future. Our second guests Clint and Derryn also gave a very interesting presentation on the upcoming 2017 Pacific Games to be held in Port Vila in December 2017 including ways in which service clubs, individuals and businesses can be involved.  ...
