Piles of uncollected rubbish everywhere, potholes that could swallow a car, and long queues outside ATMs that never have enough money - no wonder Kiwi journalist  Philippa Stevenson's called one of her first stories from Soloman Islands "We really don't know how lucky we are". 

Pip's working there for Volunteer Services Abroad on a six month assignment to help train journalists on Soloman Islands. Back home, she's part of the award winning  Tamahere Forum, an online news site serving Tamahere in the Waikato.
