Sowful Journeys, is a partnership between one of Samoa's longest serving local resorts 'Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa' and widely successful grassroots NGO 'Poutasi Development Trust'.

With a combined 35 year track record in delivering quality service and rural community development projects, this proven partnership, is the credible collaboration needed in pioneering a daring community first initiative of this nature.

But dont just take our word for it, see for yourself the solutuions we have co-created with the communities of Falealili and Siumu Destricts (with the possibility of others funding dependent) whom will directly benefit from the power of your pledge. 

 

Solution 1: Feeding Families

The first solution seeks to provide 1 x free healthy meal per day to primary school children at lower decile schools (Poutasi Manumalo Centre to begin), whilst prioritizing the sourcing and use of local farmer produce. Complimented by healthy food education programs and regular monitoring, the project seeks to take a holistic approach to introducing affordable quality eating habits to the lives of Samoan kids and their families. By helping to nourish our youth, invest in and inform our communities, we hope to reduce the financial burden in a way that also begins to address the overall health & wellness of future generations. 

Project Types:

  • A.   “Lunch Box for Kids” Initiative
  • B.   “Farm to Market” Alliance
  • C.   “Healthy Food for Families” programs/ workshops

 
Solution 2: Raising Villages

The second solution seeks to build capacity around identified areas of need and increase the self-sufficiency of local families starting with the Siumu and Falealili Destricts. By crafting out specific workshops, programs and partnerships that focus on relevant skills development, we hope to engage grass roots in progression planning that builds safer communities and more economically prosperous futures post COVID. 

Project Types:

  • A. “COVID Preparedness” programs/ workshops
  • B. “Organic Farming” programs/ workshops
  • C. “Financial Literacy & Future Planning” programs/ workshops
  • D. “Network & Business Incubator” programs/ workshops

 

Solution 3: Rejuvinating Ecologies

The third solution seeks to give back to the environments that we so often take for granted by piloting environmental projects that seek to stimulate greater greener employment across Samoa. By prioritising the importance of these ecologies, we hope to conserve the moanas or environments that have and continue to provide for us during challenging times by encouraging more localised sustainable fishing, farming and recycling practices and enterprise that will prove ever more important to our long-term island existence. 

Project Types:

  • A. Marine Protected Area
  • B. Onsite Organic Gardens Pilot
  • C. Waste Management Project
  • D. Margrove Carbon Offsetting Initiative 
  • E. “Nested Systems & Ecologies” programs/ workshops

 

Solution 4: Virtual Tip Jar 

The fourth and final solution simply seeks to ensure the mid to long term employment of our valued community members. In an industry where up to 90% of the workforce have lost their jobs and in a locale (the Southern Coast of Upolu Island) where 98% of commerce relies on tourism, our hope is to sustain and employ more rurally based men, women and children through these projects, in turn giving us all a little something extra to smile about.

Project Types:

  • A.   “Subsidize an Employee” Initiative
  • B.   Social Enterprise & Project Delivery Training 

 

It is important to note that 100% of all funds received will go towards the delivery of Solutions 1-4.

Our promise is to ensure and maintain absolute transparency throughout this funding exercise, the use of funds and roll-out of all projects. To keep our supporters and the general public well informed of our progress and the impact had so as to ensure that your input directly empowers the people that need it most.  

This is only the beginning. Sowful Journeys is here to stay. 

By pledging now, you help us take the first steps towards piloting an impact model that could change everything.

  • You can restore health
  • You can empower leaders
  • You can reshape futures
  • You can inspire hope

With just one act of kindness you can set in motion a change that would see empowering solutions be made available at little to no cost to Samoans in need.

But our goal is BIGGER

You see our hope is to not only build a viable means of continuing these efforts FREE of donations and long in to the future, but also to encourage new and similar ways of working together across Samoa and other smaller island territories for good.

Ambitious dreams we know. But lest we forget;

“That all great dreams begin with a dreamer” and that “a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”.

Will you be that dreamer?

Will you take that step?

How will you journey? #SOWFULJOURNEYS

    The fourth and final solution simply seeks to ensure the mid to long term employment of our valued community members. In an industry where up to 90% of the workforce have lost their jobs and in a locale (the Southern Coast of Upolu Island) where 98% of commerce relies on tourism, our hope is to sustain and employ more rurally based men, women and children through these projects, in turn giving us all a little something extra to smile about.

    Project Types:

    • A.   “Subsidize an Employee” Initiative
    • B.   Social Enterprise & Project Delivery Training 

     

    It is important to note that 100% of all funds received will go towards the delivery of Solutions 1-4.

    Our promise is to ensure and maintain absolute transparency throughout this funding exercise, the use of funds and roll-out of all projects. To keep our supporters and the general public well informed of our progress and the impact had so as to ensure that your input directly empowers the people that need it most.  

    This is only the beginning. Sowful Journeys is here to stay. 

    By pledging now, you help us take the first steps towards piloting an impact model that could change everything.

    • You can restore health
    • You can empower leaders
    • You can reshape futures
    • You can inspire hope

    With just one act of kindness you can set in motion a change that would see empowering solutions be made available at little to no cost to Samoans in need.

    But our goal is BIGGER

    You see our hope is to not only build a viable means of continuing these efforts FREE of donations and long in to the future, but also to encourage new and similar ways of working together across Samoa and other smaller island territories for good.

    Ambitious dreams we know. But lest we forget;

    “That all great dreams begin with a dreamer” and that “a journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”.

    Will you be that dreamer?

    Will you take that step?

    How will you journey? #SOWFULJOURNEYS

    To our fellow Journeymen, 

    We are delighted to report that we have exceeded NZD$10,000 of our NZD$100,000 target thanks to each and every one of you whom have liked, shared and pledged the effort thus far. We are extremely grateful for your support and love for this innitiative and pay it forward with more alofas.

    Though exceeding $100K to begin these programs in the early months of next year appears to be an eternity away, we are more determined than ever to continue our collective effort so as to ensure we achieve these special objectives together.

    We thank you once again and invite you to journey with us in pushing through to the next milestone. 

    With alofas-love, 

    Your Sowful Aiga-family
