Vanuatu Children with My Books

I did not expect to see this on FB today. My books in the hands of Vanuatu young people. Wow! I don’t know what to say. Ecstatic would be one word. More importantly, it’s an opportunity for these wonderful children to experience culture and literature outside of what they would normally be exposed to. My wife had organised two bags of donations of clothing on behalf of generous Australians to be picked up and distributed by our driver in Port Vila once our cruise docked. I included 20 of my books as part of the donation for middle school, which I personally signed. Two picture books were also donated to the kindergarten. But I was surprised when Marcel Sablan (the man who runs the taxis we hired) distributed the books personally and then took photos, which he posted all over facebook. A wonderful surprise to be sure.
