“By the present letter I want to express our deep gratefulness for the diverse negotiations and collaborations realised by you and the institution that you represent in favour of the Easter Island community. The concern and interest demonstrated by you in the development, care and recovery of our environment has been of great relevancy which has remained demonstrated in the executed studies and the impulse if campaigns of compilation and recycling of solid residues”.


                                                                                                                                    - Pedro Edmunds Paoa, Mayor of Easter Island


“Out of all the research I have done on the various NGO’s, your organisation appears to be the most ‘in touch’ and has undergone some important and interesting initiatives in various locations across the Pacific.”

“This is an opportunity to congratulate you on the progress you are making with your project. It is amazing how far you have progressed from our first meeting and how the scope of your project has mushroomed from the conception stage. Well done, you should be proud of your efforts. It’s a great project – holistically correct and sustainably". 


                                                               - Marthy Forman on SCRAP, Former Waste manager, Auckland City Council, New Zealand

“I watched the scrap metal DVD you had put together and was blown away with the extent of the problem. Those islands are so beautiful, it would be a shame to let a solvable problem like plastic recycling destroy them.”


                                                                                                                                                     - Nick Clark, JT Advertising, Australia

“I’m writing to you in regard to the SCRAP program. I visited your website and learned of the program…..we have no experience of international cooperation in the Pacific Region.

“The partnership first started in Funafuti with shopping bags, getting rid of plastic bags. We played a very small part in that but I guess that introduced us to the organisation. This has been a much bigger involvement with them and what I like about it is that they are totally committed to cleaning up the Pacific. And if that is what their strategy is long term, then we’re right behind them.


                                                                                                                                                -Wayne Harris-Daw, CEO, REEF Shipping

                                                                                                                                      - Danilo Astudillo Silva, Architectural Designer


“iiNet is strongly committed to Education and the Environment and have been actively involved in the community through sponsorships for a number of years. We receive many sponsorship proposals but what stood out about IHFA (now PAA) was the quality of their programs and the passion and drive of the staff within the organisation. We are happy to provide broadband and phone services in support of the work that they do, and look foward to seeing what we can achieve together for the people of the Pacific Islands.”
