To encourage NOCs to reinforce, launch and implement a series of actions in order to promote awareness of women in sport and to increase participation of women in all levels of sport both in practice and in administration.
VASANOC successfully applied for this program in 2005 which resulted in the formation of the Women In Sports Commission for Vanuatu.

Olympic Solidarity is looking to continue the training possibilities available during the 2001-2004 quadrennial, and at the same time offer increasingly specific solutions to NOC needs.
VASANOC successfully applied for this program for the first-time in 2005 for Table-Tennis and again for Archery this year.
The main objective of the technical courses programme is to provide basic training to coaches – officially recognised as such – through courses led by an expert from another country.
During the 2005–2008 quadrennium, particular focus will be laid on advance planning of the training courses and holding these in line with the rules established by the International Federations (IF) for this kind of training.
The basic idea is to allow for a “standardisation” of the training given to coaches around the world, providing a quality and performance benchmark for NOCs and their national sports structures (national federations, coaches, athletes, etc.).
Since 2004, VASANOC (with support from ONOC who manage this program) have been encouraging it's eligible Federations to use this to subsidize costs for the employment of Development Officers. Sports like Table-Tennis and Tennis have taken this approach.more
