A dedicated group of Year 9-12 students at Cleveland High are a month away from embarking on a humanitarian mission trip to create the first ever library for children in a remote Vanuatu school. This isn't a tropical holiday; for most of the trip they'll be roughing it as they camp in the school, driven by their desire to make a real difference in the children’s lives.

However, the liquidation of Air Vanuatu last week has left the team with the need to adjust their plans significantly, and has added unexpected costs right at the last minute! But they are undeterred! They are determined to complete the mission!

The Library Project Vanuatu

In 2015, Vanuatu was at the bottom of the list for South Pacific countries for literacy and numeracy. The government and stakeholders believe that lack of resources is one of the key factors for this statistic. 

We believe that the instillation of libraries in Vanuatu can help to raise the standard of literacy and numeracy. This in turn opens up new opportunities for the children, widening their future prospects. 

We partner with schools, churches, clubs etc to help them build libraries in remote villages in Vanuatu. Our vision is to see a well resourced library installed in every school in the country.  

From books, to shelves, to vouchers, to money, we have many different needs to be filled in order to get these projects completed. 

There are many ways to get involved in this project in both Australia and Vanuatu. We value the help of volunteers to help sort and pack books along with many other jobs. 

Our mission is to install a library in every school in Vanuatu to help improve literacy and numeracy.
