The OER is targeted to help the young Pacific Islanders, who have dropped out early from high school, in their daily routines and workplace. To broaden the statistical knowledge for free for the underprivileged community. The project also aims to identify the current statistical knowledge in the Pacific Region with assessments and feedbacks.
