Bridging Local Needs with Global Resources!
Since the Compact of Free Association went into effect, there has been a steady exodus of outer islanders in search of better life for themselves and their families. Many of our outer islanders living overseas in Guam, Hawaii, and the mainland have established their own base of resources. We need to organize each of these associations of outer islanders into a strong body to help the islands in terms of educational resources, financial remittances, economic development opportunities, medical care, and other social programs.
- Create a safe and efficient electronic way for outer islanders living overseas to send money back to their relatives in the islands.
- Establish partnerships with businesses on Weno whereby outer islanders overseas can electronically pay for goods and services to be picked up by designated relatives on Weno.
- Establish a way for outer islanders living and working overseas to return to the outer islands to volunteer as teachers in the respective schools.
- Seek global partnerships with corporations and humanitarian organizations to fund programs or send volunteers to provide direct services.
