Often people ask us "what is the impact of what you do?"
This is a fundamental question, and one that is guiding our work, as beyond numbers, it is critical for us to understand what we have achieved since we launched our first program and what has been the impact of these programs on the people that it serves?
In order to answer these questions, we thought that there would be no better way than asking that question directly to the people who have benefited from V-Lab. This is how the idea of the "rod blond sakses" came out.
20 of the people who went through our programs were interviewed and asked about their experience with V-Lab with the view to determine how V-Lab has impacted their lives.
These 20 stories are the stories of remarkable Ni-Vanuatu men and women who all have shown extraordinary commitment to V-Lab and to their respective projects. We therefore commend them all for their hard-work and dedication and wish them all the best for their journey!
As to you, the readers of this book, I hope that you will feel as inspired as I am upon reading these short stories.
