The Fanapi Foundation focuses on these capacity-building programs aimed at empowering self-sufficiency for the people from the outer islands in Micronesia. Please help our efforts by making a donation through our fiscal sponsor, the United Charitable Programs.
An educated citizenry is the key to breaking the cycle of disempowerment among the people form the outer islands. No single issue deserves top priority in the outer islander communities today than the ensuring of adequate education for our children. It is imperative that our young generations of outer islanders are given all the available resources to survive in a globalized and fast-changing world. Without adequate education, the future of our children and their rightful place in the global community will further decline into hopelessness. Fanapi Foundation provides technical assistance and training to outer island schools in Micronesia and support the efforts in Hawaii and other US locations to improve educational performance of outer island children from Micronesia to access culturally-appropriate tutoring services, after school programs, and college access and readiness.>>Educational Projects
Preventive and acute care for the outer islanders has been unjustly minimal due to the distance from the hospital and the lack of priorities given by the State to needs of the outer islands. The Fanapi Foundation supports the Fanapi Center in its effort to fund health education programs and the building of a centrally located health clinic specifically for the outer islanders and collaborate with humanitarian organizations globally to send volunteers to provide direct medical and acute dental care while training the local personnel in basic health care skills.>>Fanapi CARE Projects
In an ever changing world and a society which has seen great migration of citizens to the United States, it is imperative that there be community development opportunities. Using the strategies for social entrepreneurship, the Fanapi Foundation supports the efforts to create sustainable revenue-generating small business enterprises that provide economic development opportunities for the people from the outer islands, work along-side traditional leaders to preserve the cultural values and practices of the outer islands, empower youth and women to be self-sufficient. We value the building of key partnerships with US-based individuals, agencies, schools, businesses, and organizations to support leadership development opportunities for associations in the US that service outer islanders living in the United States. >>Development Projects
