Our projects base on the principles of Action Learning (AR) approach to work with individuals in local communities in all the phases of local projects; creation, planning, implementation and commissioning. Other research approaches that would benefit Lauru people are Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR), and Participatory Action Research (PAR). In general, Lauru people prefer researches that have the designs to collaborate with the village people to translate knowledge into social actions.
The specific projects strategies are:
Empowering & Capacity building
# To work with local communities on projects that may encourage capacity building and empowerment in local settings.
# To provide Christ-centred resources to equip individuals and communities.
This website is a result of our desire to help people in need locally, regionally and globally. Our parents helped us to form the desire to help those in need. We sincerely thank our parents: John John & Lily Barikia Sisiolo of Katurasele village, Choiseul Province, Solomon Islands and Paul & Hildah Galosepele of Sene village, Choiseul Province, Solomon Islands. Our upbringings result in the formation of this virtual organisation: Lauru Supporting Ministry.
Lauru Supporting Ministry is a non-profit virtual organisation formed on November 24, 2008. We design, register and manage this website for our virtual organisation. The organisation has been a family ministry since its creation. It is a faith-based ministry of the Sisiolo family, originally from Katurasele and Sene villages in Lauru (Choiseul) Island, Solomon Islands. The family now lives in Australia.
The main purpose of the organisation is to help communities in need - irrespective of religion, organisation, ethnicity, et cetera in Lauru (Choiseul) Island, in Solomon Islands. South Lauru Island in Solomon Islands is our local setting, before we engage with other communities of the world. It is our desire to form partnerships with local communities, to help locals help themselves. We discourage projects that tend to work on local communities and often suppress locals. Instead, we encourage projects that work with local communities in all the phases of projects to build capacities, empower and liberate local communities.
Island of Origin
To see the character of Jesus Christ develop in the lives of the people of Lauru(Choiseul) Island, Solomon Islands and in the world.
Our island has been traditionally called Lauru. However, through the course of history our island had Spanish, French, and English colonial influences. The Spanish initially gave our island the name San Marcos. However the French later gave the name Choiseul. Therefore, our island is now called called Lauru or Choiseul.
