Nolan Salmon Parairua

In 2010 Nolan founded the Solomon Islands Youth Strive Investors for Liberty Association (SIYSIFLA) to cut youth crime and help give young people a voice in decision-making processes.

Working with young people aged 12 to 29, the organisation promotes gender equality, literacy, health awareness and rural development across the Solomon Islands. Nolan also mentors children who have left school early to help them secure employment or return to college.

Nolan is currently working as an eco-statistician at the Solomon Islands National Statistics Office under the Ministry of Finance and Treasury.

In recognition of his work and the achievements of the Solomon Islands Youth Strive Investors for Liberty Association, Nolan received a Queen’s Young Leaders Award in 2016.
