Activating The Impact Education Proram
In 2020, on the cusp of moving from Level 4 to 3 in the Pandemic National response we launched the Impact Education Program to support a group of Women from Vanuatu, living and working in the vineyards in Marlborough under the Recognised Seasonal Employer Scheme.
Throughout 2020 we:
– Co designed the Education Program with these women encompassing their PASSIONS, INTERESTS, SKILLS, COMMUNITY NEEDS AND SOCIAL ISSUES.
Supported them with Financial Literacy training with Alex Barton from Leslie O’Donnell
Supported them with key learnings about health, nutrition and the impact of cooking on open fires with Kiwi Clean Living and Conscious Nutrition
– Supported them to develop their Business Plans covering marketing, finance, business models and growth
– Supported their hands on learning experiences at Selmes Nursery, iGenerate Solar and Thyme Bank
Supported their learnings around the UN Sustainable Development Goals
And shared so many wonderful experiences with them smiling, laughing and singing.
Last year, through one of our events with ASPECT Skincare and Advanced Skin Technology all of the ticket sale proceeds were donated to the Impact Education Program.
Through this donation we have:
Purchased 3 computers and laptops which were pre-loved and refurbished by Jonny and the HGH Services team in Auckland.
These computers will be installed at V-Lab in Port Villa, where some of these women will be part of their incubator and accelerator program when they return home to Vanuatu in May.
Secured fortnightly computer literacy sessions for the group of women to further enable them in the growth of their businesses when they return home to Vanuatu with fundamental skills.
And will continue to support this wonderful group of women with education, empowerment and investment while they are in New Zealand and return home in 2021.
Our partnerships to bring this to life are extremely valuable including:
The women that we are currently focused on supporting through this education program are based in Blenheim, Marlborough here in New Zealand temporarily working under the Regional Seasonal Employment Program, from Vanuatu.
We are focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership and enabling them with hands on and practical education, supporting them to create a viable business plan, capital investment, & mentoring and incubation programs when they return to Vanuatu.
