Helping today’s children for tomorrow
Progress Pikinini is a charity that is determined to help the children of Vanuatu to have a brighter future. We do this by providing a holistic approach sourcing donations for education and home life. We not only distribute to the children, but also schools in need. This includes reading books, school chairs and funds towards special projects.
Vanuatu is a South Pacific Ocean nation made up of 82 islands that stretch 1,300 kilometres. With a fairly large population for the island’s size, around 260,000, Vanuatu is home to thousands of children that need your help. Less than 50% of Vanuatu children go on to high school. Many primary schools lack the basics for education, and with recent natural disasters causing immense damage to community’s infrastructure the children of Vanuatu need all the help we can provide. Help the children of Vanuatu reach for a brighter future with us today.
Progress Pikinini provides a range of items to the children of Vanuatu, but books are one of our primary focuses. It may seem like a small thing but that old children’s book on your shelf can help a Vanuatu child learn to read and write. We love to receive donations of children’s books, so if you have some gathering dust, please send them our way.
We accept any donations of money and school supplies, with every cent going towards the charity. All money donated to Progress Pikinini is used to pay for the purchase of books and school supplies and the shipment of these items to Vanuatu; any leftover funds are used to improve the infrastructure of some of the local Vanuatu schools.
