    A great initiative Craig. Shame you cannot establish something earlier than a year. I suggest you pool resources and be creative on the rewards/incentives also. Cash is very ‘flat’ and there must be many other ways to create perceived value. For example I would offer opportunity for anyone to teach from their experience here in Samoa. We’d donate the accommodation and on-island expenses and they’d only need pay to get here to share on their topic of passion. Difficult I know from your country but it’s what I can contribute. The principle remains however that perceived value an be increased with collaboration and creativity.
