WAM on Ebeye

November 11, 2012

  I will post the pictures here as soon as I have them but the WAM program on Ebeye is hoping to launch its first boat this week!  Waan Aelon en Majel is the program I'm volunteering with and they're about to complete their first training session on Ebeye.  WAM teaches young people how to build, sail, and navigate traditional Marshallese canoes.  The program has been very successful on Majuro and this is the first expansion program.  They've struggled with getting supplies and making progress so finishing and launching a canoe is a really big deal.  The first Ebeye graduates will finish the program in the first week of December and plans are already in the works for another group to start in January.
