See this Craigslist posting about a documentary to feature ni-Vanuatu learning from American hosts:
KEO FILMS, a UK-based company is producing a documentary for a reputable US cable network in which a small group of tribesmen from the island of Vanuatu (South Pacific) will visit with several different families throughout the US this fall.
I have a Peace Corps Partnership for the school I taught at last year,
Vila North School. Peace Corps Partnership is a programme where
volunteers submit small projects to be funded to Peace Corps, and then
Peace Corps puts the description of the project on the Peace Corps
website so that people in America can help the volunteer and donate to
My project is for three computers for the school. I need about
$4,000.00 for the project. Donations are tax deductible. So donate
early and donate often. If you are interested, follow this link:
Thanks for your help,

Mifala i bin shek from se wan woman blong Vanuatu i kam! Eslyn Kaltongga, Mike’s student from Matevulu, was in DC on an internship. She is currently studying Journalism and Communications at the University of HI. Of course, she credited to one of the reasons why she is here in the US studying is because of her Mista Mike.
Needless to say, we were all captivated in meeting this strong, independent woman. It was a real great honor to have a touch of the past meet our present. Vanuatu’s future is looking brighter day by day!
|On her last night in DC, we, of course, had a kakae for Eslyn complete with kava from Black Sands (www.nakamalathome.com), homemade laplap manioc, and kumala to the sounds of string band.|
Eslyn, mifala sori long yu be mbae mifala lukim yu bakegen!
Welcome to Yumi Stap Storian
This is a site for Returned Peace Corps Volunteers to share their stories about their service in the Republic of Vanuatu, a glorious and hospitable string of islands in the South Pacific. (Yumi Stap Storian is a Bislama phrase that means we're having a conversation.)
