Community development: ROCKET+SHIP has strong links with Bene village, Espiritu Santo island, where we’re supporting clean water and renewable energy initiatives, ensuring children receive primary and secondary education, and building homes, farms and livelihoods for the community.
Emergency response: The ROCKET+SHIP team was able to contribute to the relief effort following the devastation of Cyclone Pam in March 2015, by using social media to support the fundraising activities of key organisations like the Red Cross, helping to rebuild homes in affected communities on Efate island, and providing invaluable medical workforce support in the Emergency Department in Port Vila.
