Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 41

The West ‘Are’Are Rokotanikeni Association is a women-led, volunteer-run savings club that gives women a place to come together, learn more about managing finances and store their savings safely. There are branches of these savings clubs all over the country, which means women living in remote areas are not excluded. More and more women have been volunteering at WARA each year, and in 2015 it had 1,065 members. In the 10 years of the savings club, members have taken out over 1,000 loans and saved more than a million Solomon Islands dollars.
