slide1Improving educational outcomes by upgrading infrastructure at Solomon Island primary and secondary schools

 Overview

VINE’s Capacity Building Solomon Islands project has a heart for creating opportunity and building pathways out of poverty through improved educational outcomes in the Solomon Islands.

VINE’s vision includes investment in key infrastructure and learning facilities which, in the long-term, will, directly and indirectly, impact a significant proportion of the population.

In partnership with World Relief Australia, VINE Communities continues to support a wide range of initiatives across various educational institutions including:
