Vanuatu Soccer Project May 29, 2015Team SOS represented by Peter Cole & Michael Rochford travelled to Vanuatu in May to participate in the official SOS family fun day on the island of Santo. For 18 months SOS and Village de Santo had been working to get a shipment of Soccer equipment to Vanuatu for rural Soccer, Sports & Youth Clubs. SOS sent over 1,500 brand new soccer balls, many boots and other types of equipment to Vanuatu. Sponsored by Santo Hardware, Village de Santo and others the project took place and arrived at a time when the need could not be greater due to recent cyclone Pam. Team SOS also distributed Soccer equipment to villages, schools & soccer clubs on the Island of Vila, the equipment was very well received by the Children & Youth. SOS has also set up logistics to run a Cultural Exchange event where 40 Australian heading to Vanuatu in November will volunteer for half a day painting a school and then be immersed in Traditional Dancing and Singing for the afternoon. During the afternoon 3 lucky school will also receive full sporting equipment kits donated by SOS.
