Help Sail to Vanuatu this November

Aloha Tatou, The Vaka Taumako Project of Solomon Islands is preparing for a voyage from Taumako to Vanuatu in November, 2016.  The aim of this voyage is to reunite the families who have been separated for over 70 years by a closed border. 

The Children of Taumako

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.

Cylcone Pam

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.

A Letter from Jasper

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.
