Scientology Volunteer Ministers South Pacific Goodwill Tour Tackles Solomon Islands Literacy

The Solomon Islands
22 May 2012

Scientology Volunteer Ministers deliver seminars on Study Technology at Honiara schools in the Solomon Islands in May 2012.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers South Pacific Goodwill Tour has completed a series of seminars on Study Technology developed by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. Delivering to teachers and students from 31 schools in Guadalcanal, the volunteers addressed education as the key issue to improve conditions for the island.

The Solomon Islands ranks 142 of 187 countries in the United Nations Human Development Index (HDI), which measures life expectancy, literacy, education, standards of living, and quality of life. The Solomon Islands also ranks 126 out of 160 countries in the most recent United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) report. The key to improving these rankings and the standard of living in the Solomon Islands is education.

“It was interesting and stimulating to attend the Scientology seminar which addressed our real needs as teachers,” said a teacher from the Lunga School.

“Now we understand what our difficulties are with our students, and why.”

“The workshop cleared my confusion about how to study and how to teach,” said a teacher from the Tamboko School. “It helps me solve the barriers of study and develop my teaching.”

“I am very grateful for this seminar on ‘The Technology of Study,’” said the senior teacher at the Verahue Primary School. “I now know their weaknesses in learning and can tell and show them what to do so that they get a good education.”

“Scientology is for people from all walks of life, any race, color, culture or belief,” says Mathew Andrews, leader of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers South Pacific Goodwill Tour. “Anyone can learn more about life from The Scientology Handbook, which includes a chapter called “The Technology of Study” and 18 additional subjects, all of great importance to the individual.”
