Risma has been surfing since a very young age and, in the face of the challenges that come with being a woman pioneer in a male-dominated sport, she has reached a highly competitive level, and is inspiring a new generation of girls and young women to ride the waves. ”Solwota Sista” is the first episode of Island Voices, a three-part podcast series produced by the UN Office for Small Island Developing States ( OHRLLS ), which looks at the ways that women in Vanuatu are attempting to break down barriers, participating in areas of island life traditionally reserved for boys and men.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT : UNDP 2001 : UPDATED PROPOSALS ARISING FROM CONSULTATIONS WITH THE EXECUTIVE BOARD
DP/1997/20 English Page 4 14. The SURF system is not another management level. It is a technical service to country offices. (...) SURFs will tap into United Nations system and non-governmental organization (NGO) expert networks and will not duplicate existing expertise. (...) While the two UNDP staff foreseen for each facility will be covered by the core budget, expert services through the SURFs will be demand-driven. SURFs that generate strong country office interest in their services will flourish.

A line of patrons waiting up to two hours to get into the café is a common sight - especially on Sundays, when young people get to surf the e-waves free of charge. Yeoville's patrons are a mix of businesspeople in the process of setting up an IT business, university students doing on-line research and teenagers chatting with e-pals around the world. (...)
