Temotu Province Nov 2013

The Temotu Province is the eastern most location of the Solomon Islands. Two groups of islands comprise this region being that of Santa Cruz Islands and Reef Islands. This is a total population of 20,000. The ongoing challenges faced by such an isolated community include water, sanitation, education and communication with the outside world. Even brief periods of aid and development can lift a person out of a sense of hopelessness.
