Project Sankamap



A Solidarity Project of the Marist Oceania Council

12/06/2009: Solomon Islands

Project Sankamap (lit sun-come-up) began after in 2007 and is managed by the Oceania Solidarity Commission. The project is part of an ongoing commitment by Marists to educational development on Bougainville. The project provides a central base of operations, a resource centre with books, power, printing, transport and communications and sponsorship of professional development for teachers and Boards of Management. The physical structure (named Wanbel Haus) is situated in Arawa and was constructed by Marist students of St Joseph’s College in Mabiri under the direction of Mr Benedict To’oming and Br Frank Richardson. The project is currently staffed by Br Gerry Burns, Mr David Miringtoro and Mrs Lucy Sinei in partnership with the Bougainville Catholic Education Agency and Horizont3000 (an Austrian development agency).

Project Sankamap is enhancing educational outcomes in over fifty schools located between the original St Joseph’s High School, at Kieta/Rigu and its post Bougainville Crisis site at Mabiri where the integrated elementary school, high school and vocational centre has been renamed St Joseph’s College.
