YouMe Support Foundation Gives Away a Resort in a World First
YouMe Support Foundation today launched a unique, world first fund raising project, partnering with http://winaresort.com. Seachange Lodge, a boutique resort with a tax-free income, in Port Vila, in the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, will be given away later this year, by YouMe Support Foundation.
YouMe Support Foundation provides non-repayable higher-education grants for students, who are geographically and economically underprivileged.
Mr Harris Apos, the Banks Area Secretary said, “Unless we get outside help, our high achieving students will never go to high school. They will never realize their dreams of becoming a school teacher, doctor, mechanic, pilot, or nurse.“
One exercise book is shared between three pupils and school rooms are often non-existent. Pencils are broken into three. Fully qualified teachers are not always available and many parents cannot read or write.
Rick and Wendy Tendys, proprietors of Seachange Lodge said, “They really appreciative guests who, since 2004, have helped provide desperately needed school supplies”.
Recently, a cyclone struck the island community. The village chiefs appealed to the government for help. They were told: “We will look into it, but there are no funds in the budget for such natural disasters.“
In July 2006, Vanuatu , made famous by A. Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific, was ranked as the world’s Happiest Country on Earth, by the British New Economics Foundation’s (NEF), ‘Happy Planet Index’. Yet, without outside assistance, these communities are left to battle on their own.
You can assist through the raffle at http://seachangelodge.com. Participants will get an Early Bird Buyer chance to win $1000 cash and still enter the Super Draw for Seachange Lodge resort.
