In February 2018, Tonga was hit by cyclone Gita - the worst in Tonga's history. 

This cyclone severely damaged a significant proportion of the infrastructure in the Nuku'Alofa community. Among these damaged buildings was the local Community Centre of the Longolongo people. This centre is large contributor to the lifestyle of this community, being used as a chapel, holding local markets, running life class and hosting youth events.

On August 31st, 2019, Warrane College will be sending a team of 20 university students to aid in rebuilding the Longolongo Community Centre over the course of a 2 week service project.

The students pay for the costs of travel for the project. 

However, money is needed to fund a proportion of the costs - including, but not limited to, utilities, building materials, and donations to community schools.

This page is established to help obtain the funds to partially cover the necessary costs for the reconstruction of the community centre.

Please donate! Your generosity is sincerely appreciated. Any and all donations, small or large, will make a significant difference in aiding our endeavour!

All proceeds will go directly towards completion of the project.

Alternatively, you can also make a direct payment (which will not be hit with any fees) with the following details below;

What is a "Workcamp"? 

Warrane College has a history of "Workcamps" - these are volunteer service projects aiming to contribute towards the immediate welfare and sustainable development of the various communities. This initiative  started in 1987 with the intention to serve people in need in developing countries and disadvantaged communities within Australia.

Warrane's past Workcamps can be seen here;  https://warrane.unsw.edu.au/workcamps/

Workcamps also aim to encourage the generosity and sense of solidarity of young Australians.

Here is a glimpse of our 2018 Vanuatu Workcamp!

Our Workcamp Team recently met Louise Waterhouse, the Honorary-Consulate of the Kingdom of Tonga.

Louise provided an exceptional overview of the rich family heritage and the virtue of charity exhibited within Tongan culture. She also discussed the hidden beauty of the Tongan landscape - like swimming with whales!

The Warrane boys are keen to help the Nuku'Alofa community but still need more donors to help fund for the building materials.

Please help us fundraise by spreading the word of the Warrane Tonga Workcamp and sharing our link with your family and friends - so that we can rebuild the Longolongo Community Centre with the best materials and equipment!

Thank you for your help and support!!
