Helping to Transform a Nation
Acts is proud and privileged to assist in the Solomon Islands initiative through our partners who through their investment of time and expertise helped give birth to a local company called The Islands’ Own.
The aim is to start the productions of locally sourced and locally produced premium VCO. To date, the centre has been employing close to 26 locals to work, train and be involved in a national social business initiative. Our goal is to eventually scale up the productions and create many more job and earning opportunities to help improve the locals’ living standards.
In January 2019, we reached a significant milestone where we welcomed the honorable Prime Minister Rick Houenipwela to visit the production centre. The Prime Minister and his chosen cabinets were briefed through the entire production process and also the Islands’ Own Outgrowers’ Program that is designed to support rural development and agricultural advancement.
