Solomon Islands Support Group

The purpose is to support the Dominican Sisters in the Solomon Islands through:

Sharing educational resources about the Solomon Islands with Dominican schools and interested colleagues and friends.

Accepting and storing educational and religious resource materials which could be useful for the ministry of the Sisters in the Solomons.

Arranging “working bees” through the Justice Educator, Santa Sabina College, and the College community service programme to pack the materials for the Solomons.

Arranging for the transport of collected materials.

Working with the Solomon Sisters visiting Sydney to clarify their needs and obtaining feedback on which sent materials were most useful.

Fundraising to help payment of freight costs or to provide money for purchase of materials better obtained in the Solomon Islands.

Selling craft sent by the Solomon Sisters for sale in Australia and sending the money back to the Sisters.
