When completed, the renovated site will cater for young people of the community, particularly senior secondary school students and young women.
The old Natapoa Mission House was devastated by Category 5 cyclone Pam back in 2015. It is located at the Natapoa Complex in Port Vila. The building is owned by the Diocese of Vanuatu but it has been leased to CFC Vanuatu for the purposes of ANCOP Vanuatu. The Rispek Hemi Honorabol Developmen Program (RHHDP) aims to renovate the Natapoa Complex. The renovated site will cater for young people of the community, particularly senior secondary school students and young women.
The RHHDP endeavours to make this space one that is not only for academic purposes, but one for character building and improved personal, emotional, spiritual, and mental wellbeing of its users. Users of the Natapoa Complex will participate in any of the following seven programs: Nutrition and Exercise, Personality and Emotional Development, Human Values, Spirituality, Communication, Mind and Positive Thinking, and Discipline. The RHHDP will be the first of its kind in that it caters more to personal development. However, it does so not as an alternative to academic development but as an enhancement of the individual, their peers, the community, and Vanuatu as a whole.
Renovation started in early 2020 and at this stage it is near completion already. The project is fully funded by ANCOP Australia.
