THE GREEN LION SAMOA
Make the lives of the locals to better by helping them to improve their personal hygiene, health and dietary habits. Reports in the recent years have shown alarming rates of diabetes among the people in Samoa. Not without good reason Samoa ranks among the top three countries with the highest per capita incidence of diabetes and related illnesses in the world. — Program Description By joining the healthcare project, you will be able to contribute to the society in two major ways. That is by contributing to improved health education among children by working at schools and contributing to improved health education by working at villages. In terms of teaching at schools, you will be basically working with children by teaching about good health practices, maintenance of daily hygiene and cleanliness. On the other hand, you will also engage with the local community by teaching them about good health practices and habits, health and hygiene, etc. However In Samoa, the main target group would be women. In fact, they play important social roles and through many activities they are seen to contribute to sustainable improvements at their respective village communities. Therefore, you will teach them on various health related aspects. Aims &Objectives The project aims to assist in the education of healthcare with the objective of improving the life span through good practices.

Samoa is arguably one of those “forgotten” countries which never fail to make a huge impact on anyone lucky enough to travel beyond the better known destinations. It’s not generally known that Samoa is in fact the Heart of Polynesia, and is very rich in its Pacific culture. Land and seascapes are absolutely stunning and diverse, ranging from true rainforests to some of the most beautiful beaches on Planet Earth. Spread over primarily 2 islands i.e. Upolu (on which the capital Apia is located), and Savaii which is larger but less populated. Black lava stone from the non-active volcanoes can be seen in many places, and 3,000 year old star mounds are blessed with mythical stories. Good tar sealed roads connect the many villages and natural sites around the main islands. Apia is also a popular fishing destination and visit to the fish market in Apia in the early morning will surely give you a unique experience! There are also many restaurants in Apia to fulfill the craving of seafood in you.
