There is so much to be done but everything takes time and patience in Tonga. We have several short term and long term goals we hope to accomplish in the following months and years.
Once we have land, ship over the container of tools, and open up the camp for skateboarding and biking, we will begin building housing for the workshops, offices, and guest teachers. We want One Love Inc. to be financially self-sufficient as soon as possible so our future plans would be to appeal to tourists with cultural presentations, art, performances, and opening a guest house. Future plans would also include expanding One Love Inc. to other Pacific islands and these islands specific needs.
- Donations to Build Skatepark -
One of our goal’s to help the youth in Tonga is to provide positive activities. This skatepark would be a small step for something bigger in the future as we get the word out for skate sessions on Tonga’s first skatepark. Help us make this dream a reality for the youth in Tonga!Donate
- Donations to Lease Land -
Our number one goal is to first lease land here in Tonga for One Love Inc. We have to lease it since foreigners cannot buy land in Tonga. We sent a letter to the King of Tonga and his officials to see if we are able to obtain this land for free since it will be used for the people of Tonga and not for personal gain. Since this option is still pending we are currently looking for land to lease and One Love Inc. will begin raising the funds to lease land and accepting donations for this purpose.Donate
- International Shipping -
One Love Inc. recently received a generous donation of tools for starting the construction and mechanics workshops and also to aid in the building of structures for the camp. We will be shipping these tools to Tonga once we have leased land here. We will need help with the funds to buy a container and the costs related to shipping it.Donate
- Donate Supplies -
After we have land, one of the first projects we will start will be the skateboarding , obstacle course, and biking since it requires minimal and low-cost materials using mostly cement and local materials. We will need used skateboards, bikes, helmets, etc. to be collected to send out in the container with the tools.Donate
- Administrative Services-
During this whole process we need people who are good at paperwork! We need people who can find and fill out grant applications, make phone calls and inquiries about shipping costs, arrange pick up of any equipment, etc. while we are in Tonga.Volunteer
