Meet Ethel and Smith: Vocation and Volcanos in Vanuatu

Written by

Recently I caught up with Ethel and Smith, the Women’s and Youth Officers respectively, for the Anglican Church in Vanuatu. Recognising that women and youth are often vulnerable members of society in developing countries, Anglican Overseas Aid is supporting Ethel and Smith through a Youth and Women Empowerment Project, which has stemmed from the solar project. This supports women and youth to improve their living standards in their families, within their communities and church, and as Ethel says ‘really, the nation as a whole’ through financial literacy, livelihoods opportunities and addressing social issues facing youth and women.

The 23rd day of June 2013 is now a historical day for the Anglican Community in the Province of Melanesia but more particularly it is for the Anglican members of Guadalcanal. Truly it is written down in their history – an event the people of Guadalcanal wish to see eventuate and thus talked about since 1978. Some prominent church leaders initiating the idea are not able to witness this great ceremony, but their sons and daughters, grannies and great grannies do witness the day after a weeklong rally, sleepless nights, frustrations, upsets and criticisms.
