VanuatuSpirit of Sharing, has been working with the people of Vanuatu on Santo island in 2014 & 2015 identifying the local community's sports needs... Overwhelmingly, people said they needed Soccer equipment. Requests were received from 65 Soccer teams, as well as numerous schools. SOS put out a call to its various supporter networks, and received significant donations, making the project achievable.
Our partners in Vanuatu organised the freight, and now the shipment has arrived with more than 1000 soccer balls and lots of other soccer equipment.
The SOS team will visit Vanuatu soon to distribute the equipment at a large scale event, with all soccer clubs and schools who requested equipment, in attendance. The recipients are mainly from the outer and surrounding islands of Santo Vanuatu.
SOS plans to continue supporting local communities. SOS will mount a volunteering program in November this year, in which 50 Australian youths will spend time painting and assisting villages devastated in the recent cyclone 'Pam'.
