Community Projects

We seek to work with community leaders to identify projects that are meaningful and beneficial, no matter how small, and then following through with a commitment to deliver that project. Samoan Enhancement Projects ID: SA01: Paving Breaker – Lava Field Cultivation Requirement: During our last visit to Samoa, we spent time with Tangaloa from Savai’i in Toa and around villages who are small lot farmers seeking to cultivate cacao, coffee and other products on the rich but rock hard lava fields. Many are seeking to re-establish there plantations after the 2013 Cyclone. The process of breaking through the lava to replant is slow, heavy, hard and very manual work.  Solution: We donated a suitable paving breaker to Samoa for use by the communities.
