Volunteer Trip to Tonga!

Organized by: Irene Soo

THE STORY:

I am off to Tonga from August 1, 2016 - August 8, 2016 on a volunteer trip with Surf For Life! This is my second trip with Surf For Life, and I'm so excited to explore a new culture and give back to the people of Tonga. Surf For Life is teaming up with the Tonga National Youth Congress (TNYC) to build a virgin coconut oil (VCO) and vanilla processing facility on the island of Vava'u. This facility will enable local farmers to capitalize on the year-round supply of coconuts and vanilla for export to countries like Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. The new facility will also create employment opportunities for young people that have graduated from high school. Currently there are not many jobs available to Tongans outside of the tourism season, which only lasts half of the year.

Anything (I mean, ANYTHING!) you can donate will be greatly appreciated. All of the money raised on this page will go directly to my trip.
