Project Solomon Islands 1993

Digitization and archival of the the photo album of Project Solomon Islands 1993 (by Youth Challenge International) by volunteer Damaris Cerdas who went to Makira-Ulawa Province to:
  1. Prevent malaria in Ulawa (sometimes termed "the first project"; cf. picture 73); and to
  2. Construct a small clinic in Na'hana (sometimes termed "the second project"; cf. picture 39).
She arrived in Honiara, Guadalcanal by plane on 17 April 1993 (cf. picture 1), and left Honiara (seemingly together with other volunteers) on 25 or 26 June 1993 (cf. picture 97).

Project Solomon Islands 1993 seems to have been a project by Youth Challenge International, which was supported by (cf. picture 5):
  • Rotary Club of Honiara;
  • Rotary Australia Clubs (multiple, cf. picture 5 for a list); and
  • Rotary Canada.
Project Solomon Islands 1993 had the following co-operating agencies (cf. picture 3):
