Poanangisu Village Partnership



Country of Origin



The Paonangisu Village Partnership (PVP) is a partnership between the people of Poanangisu village in North Efate and members of the congregation from North Ringwood Uniting Church in Melbourne, Australia.

It commenced in 2013 following a Supporters Tour, organised by Medical Sailing Ministries (MSM) from North Ringwood Uniting Church. Discussion amongst the participants of the Supporters Tour revealed a desire to maintain an ongoing relationship with the people of Paonangisu – for the mutual benefit and encouragement of both sides.

The objectives of the Paonangisu Village Partnership (PVP) are summarised below:

1. Encouraging each other in our respective Christian “faith journeys”.

2. Developing a two-way exchange of friendship, fellowship and cultural awareness, specifically:

youth musical tours
educational exchanges
student scholarships
evangelical outreach
leadership & vocational training
3. Economic development, including the establishment of small business and tourism activities, generating income to be used for the betterment of the community.
