Village Technology Trust is an NGO based in Honiara, Solomon Islands, in the south west of the Oceania region.
The purpose of Village Technology is to encourage the introduction and utilization of appropriate technology into [mainly] rural areas in order to enhance opportunities in education and training, income generation, rural agriculture and industry and so improve the quality of life in the provinces.
VTT has innovated with new designs of village water supplies and appropriate technologies including solar electrification since 2000. We are also interested in the right to communicate and participate, and hence to amplify village voices with appropriate community media. Our approach to training aims to empower village people to identify and appraise solutions themselves, for instance through participatory and adaptive research.
