OceansWatch launches its Virgin Coconut Oil production program in the Reef Islands - Solomon Islands for 2016 - We need your help!

International

WHAT OCEANSWATCH DOES

Build capacity by training women to produce high quality virgin coconut oil for the export market.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We envision a world where all people - even in the most remote areas of the globe - hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others.

We believe providing safe, affordable access to capital to those in need helps people create better lives for themselves and their families.

Utilizing an abundant, renewable, and climate resilient resource (coconut) and low-tech systems, virgin coconut oil production provides an environment-friendly alternative to the unsustainable harvest of marine resources and logging that is common throughout the region.

Finally, the global demand for virgin coconut oil continues to increase. For many economically poor communities on remote islands, who have few opportunities for earning money, the ‘tree of life’ can provide a sustainable livelihood. Coconuts are part of the heritage of Pacific islanders, and virgin coconut oil is a remarkable product that we can all benefit from.

HOW DO WE DO IT

Through the generous support of volunteers that donate the use of their sailing yachts to transport volunteers, equipment and supplies to remote communities within Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands.
