YWAM Solomon Islands was founded as a charitable trust in 1995, and the base was established on its current location in 2000.
The Lerch Family of Switzerland joined the base in 2016 and has been working side by side with the local Tafua Family to bring the base into a new chapter with greater focus on community development and sustainability.
The base has been constantly evolving with new buildings, solar system, water tower and biogas. The vision is to be a sustainable model for other places and communities.
The base currently consists of 22 local staff and 4 international who are all working voluneraly full time. A new base is also starting up in Munda in the Western Province.
