Non-Profit Seeks Donors & Sponsors to Support Its Young Leaders Programs for Pacific Islanders
Consistent with the nonprofit’s vision of a world that respects, inspires, and empowers Pacific Islanders, these programs provide the next generation of public policy leaders in the Pacific Islands region with the knowledge, skills, networks, and experience necessary to succeed on the world stage regardless of location, race, religion, national origin, sex, or handicap.
Through these programs, young leaders are provided the opportunity to publish their insights and analyses on the most pressing policy issues facing the Asia-Pacific, including climate change, natural disasters, education, food security, maritime security, major power competition, public health, disarmament and proliferation, trade and development, social inequity, and natural resources.
In the process, participants are provided mentorship from senior diplomats and foreign policy experts. They are also given marketing and communications support that generates global awareness for their unique perspectives on contemporary issues.
Over the next two years, PacSoc plans to grow and expand its young leader programs as the organization wants to provide more opportunities to young leaders in the following locations: Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Tokelau, Wallis and Futuna, American Samoa, Timor-Leste, Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom, Japan, and other Asia-Pacific neighbors.
PacSoc is therefore looking for donor and sponsor organizations (e.g., trusts, foundations, corporations, etc.) that share its commitment to eliminating all barriers that undermine the security, equality, sustainability, and cultural integrity of small island developing states in the Pacific.
Interested parties should contact the Pacific Islands Society’s Director of Development, Keiko Ono, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
