'Sustainability is the capacity of education reform initiatives to continue' (Webster, Silova, Moyer, & McAllister, 2011, para. 12). In this article we reflect upon the process of organisational strengthening that was a key component of the Partnership between the Faculty of Education at the University of Waikato and the School of Education, Solomon Islands College of Higher Education. We argue that within the New Zealand Aid Programme[i]funded partnership, the building of mutually respectful relationships, building leadership capacity and the respect for and inclusion of indigenous cultural considerations were key to the organisational change process and its sustainability.

[i]      At the time of the partnership NZAID was the name of the New Zealand's aid programme. With a change in government there has been a restructuring and NZAID is now know as New Zealand Aid Programme.
