Lorenzo Sartilug of the Yap State Department of Education reports:
"The donated dictionaries are ready to go on the ship. The ones for Ulithi Schools will be sent on the plane."
That government field trip ship will be sending the dictionaries to middle school students throughout the "outer" or "neighboring" islands of Yap State.
The outer islands -mostly lowing atolls actually- are collectively home to half of Yap State's population. They span hundreds of miles of open ocean between Yap Proper and Chuuk Lagoon. Habele also provides K-12 tuition scholarships to support ambitious students from these remote Pacific islands, in order to help equalize educational opportunity.
