Welcome to a new look for Vaoala Vanilla. Our aim is to offer you an authentic experience of a living organic Pacific vanilla farm that is 100% Samoan indigenous and nurtured with a whole lot of love. Explore our handmade vanilla and community products and join us on our Journey in Samoa.
Welcome to our Community page where we are delighted to be able to use our online store platform as a gateway for local indigenous community members and groups to access international markets
Our main focus is to empower local women entrepreneurs to access and learn how an e-commerce business can help with their financial stability during covid-19 and beyond.
By using our Shopify International store platform, we are excited to provide fellow women entrepreneurs, community trusts and community village groups that are led by Samoan women, the opportunity to sell their handmade and indigenous products to our international markets as well.
This is our way of giving back to the community and empowering other indigenous Samoan women entrepreneurs with an online platform that will generate additional income for themselves and their families. We are providing them with an opportunity, the resources and skills to learn and understand how e-commerce can take their handmade products to a whole other level, as well as showcasing their creative flair, passion and story.
The few products showcased here are only a small sample what these community groups and women entrepreneurs are producing. This collection will grow as we bring more of their products to our Store.
It is our aim for many of these women to eventually create and manage their own Shopify online stores with our guidance and support.
All sale proceeds (if not already purchased by Vaoala Vanilla) go directly to these Indigenous Entrepreneurs
