Children playing in front of the Lorlow village cooperative store. Cooperatives were first introduced in the New Hebrides in 1963 and the idea traveled fast covering most areas even though foreign companies who had been trading in the islands resisted. In areas where cacao is grown for export, many societies operate their own driers/fermentaries for the benefit of their members. Before the stores, members might have to wait many weeks for a trading ship to arrive before they could obtain supplies other than those provided locally. The traditional-style tom-tom is again in use to call villagers to meetings and gatherings.
