Highlights from Meph and Mimi’s Presentation at Kaua’i Community College 13 October, 2015
We now have a translation of the research report of social anthropologist and round-the-world sailor, Renate Westner, MA. She came to Taumako in 2007 to study the educational and life experience of children.
Dr. Simon Salopuka, of Vaka Taumako Project – Solomon Islands, will submit this report to the SI government, offering recovery recommendations in the wake of Cylcone Pam.
First images of the aftermath of Cyclone Pam on Taumako.
Cyclone Pam has caused great destruction in Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, including Temotu Province, where Vaka Taumako Project operates. We are currently raising funds to help islanders in Temotu with inevitable food and medical costs.
Dear Mimi, I apologize for writing you so late, but I need to thank you for taking me on the trip with you. Ever since my mom went with you in 2005 I’ve wanted to go to the Solomon Islands.
