Day 3: in Samoa and we are off to meet the Adimaimalaga Tafuna’i co-founder and the executive director of Women in Business Development Inc (WIBDI) and Alberta Vitale, Associate Director - Programmes. WIBDI is an inspiring organisation that is dedicated to strengthening village economies in Samoa in ways that honour indigenous tradition, use traditional and modern technology, and promote fair trade.
Our meeting left us feeling very excited about what markets and interest we could bring forth from Australia. Within 24hrs they had organsied us a number of site visits on Apolu and Savaii. An opportunity for us to meet the farmers and understand their farming methods and where we could work with them.
