Delegation for the Pacific
More than 1,000 households and 30 commercial and government offices on Ha ‘apai in the Kingdom of Tonga, will benefit from more efficient energy networks thanks to a TOP 2.3 million (€1 million) grant from the European Union. The funds will be released to the Government of Tonga as part of cyclone rehabilitation efforts. The island of Ha'apai sustained serious damage and significant power losses following Cyclone Ian in early 2014 when its energy grid was badly affected after 90 percent of the power lines on the island were damaged.

A new EU-supported programme implemented by Takiama Ma’a Tonga Incorporated (TMT) will help address the increasing rate of school dropouts in the Kingdom. The TOP 280,000 initiative will ensure that adequate strategies and programmes are put in place to significantly and rapidly reduce the number of dropouts. This innovative programme will allow all stakeholders, including policy makers, school leaders, teachers, parents, children and their communities to work together to keep children in schools.
