We collaborate with governments, local partners and communities in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Tonga and Vanuatu to ensure that our services can reach children in even the most remote communities. What follows is a collection of some of the programs provided across the Pacific that are supported by Save the Children Australia.
