An Outboard Motor to feed a village

$1,650 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 19 people in 19 months
While being lucky enough to visit the Island of Fulanga in a remote part of the Fiji archipelago we visited a village and met Jotame Leuda and his wife who were assigned by the chief to be our hosts while we were there. Jotame asked us to look at his outboard engine to see if we could fix it. We found that the engine was completely ceased and would never be able to be fixed. The village of approximately 80 people live off the land and sea for their survival and we  would like raise funds to purchase a new outboard for Jotame to help him provide for his family and village. The people are the friendliest and most generous people I have ever had the pleasure to have met.

Skip a few bottles of wine & beers, and please make a donation to help support Jotame and his village!

Thank you to all my wonderful friends and their friends who donated to this project. We raised enough money to purchase a 15hp long shaft outboard which I sent to Savusavu in Fiji where my boat was kept for the hurricane season. With Jules, Gordon as crew we checked out of Fiji and on rout to New Caledonia we stopped of at Fulanga and delivered the engine to a very surprised and ecstatic Jotame. Thank you all again we have made him and his family very happy

Thanks to all my wonderful friends and their wonderful friends for raising enough money to buy an Outboard engine for Jotame in Fulanga Fiji.
I sent it over to Fiji where my boat was stationed and after checking out of Fiji we went by Fulanga and presented it to Jotame. He was over the mood and with the help of Gordon Buchan and Julie Malay we commissioned the engine and fitted it to his boat. Here are a few pictures of the event.
