Vanuatu - The Tanna Project
During our crossing of the Pacific we stopped at the Island of Tanna in the Vanuatus. During our time there we were made aware of the problems that the local community were struggling with in regard to losing access to their ancestral lands. We decided to try to spread the word on their behalf and raise funds for a lawyer. There battle is ongoing and we wish to support them in this fight, no matter how long it takes.
We started an internet campaign in October 2017 with the goal of raising 600€ that was needed quickly for court proceedings. We collected 1350€ so far and that money has been sent to the community to start an appeal and pay a lawyer to validate the claim to the rights of the land.
