Plants 4 Life is a project in coordination with Chuck Corbett to develop sustainable agricultural methods for the islands of Kiribati and to help promote healthy eating habits away from Western exploit of unhealthy food imports. Too many of my friends and family in Kiribati have serious health issues, mainly diabetes, from excessive sugar intake and lack of proper nutrients. Pair these health issues with limited to no access to modern health support, creating a recipe for disaster. 184,000 people a year die from sugary drinks alone. Promoting a more plant based diet will benefit not only the people of Kiribati, but the people of the world as well. Supporters of Te Maeu Projects: https://www.temaeuprojects.org
Please help to support this local Kiribati startup if you are fortunate enough to do so.
The goal of Atoll Escapes is to empower the people of Kiribati through integrative tourism, helping promote local traditions and culture before it is lost to Westernization and big corporations building unsustainable models of tourism. You will be staying with local families in traditional houses, accommodated by locals who speak fluent English with a goal to share their culture and to treat you as part of their family.
