Our Co-mmunity

We want to make equality real. And we know that we’re not alone.

We are building a global community of change-makers and we’re inviting you to join us!

But who and what makes up this Co-mmunity?

Currently, we are working yumi olgeta (all together) in Vanuatu and Australia.

In Australia, we focus on education programs and generating funds through social enterprise & vibrant events. We are volunteers, schools, entertainers, supporters and advisors who believe in profit for purpose.

In Vanuatu, we are empowered villages made up of students, teachers, parents, school counsellors and local builders. We co-llaborate with the Vanuatu Department of Education, provincial education offices, local businesses, advisors and aid organisations.

Our global education, livelihood and capacity-building programs are developed by the communities themselves, ensuring that ownership stays at local level and impact is empowering and sustainable.

The same can be said for our social enterprises, education partnerships and events in Australia – with leadership development, skills and capacity building being a clear theme for our young people.
