Palauan Students to Malta, Europe

Dear Friends and Family,  Our daughters, Miel Sequeira-Holm & Dilluna Rivera, LOVE the ocean and are actively working to protect it.  They are both part of the "Heirs To Our Ocean" family and as "Heirs" they were invited to apply to attend the upcoming Sustainable Ocean Alliance Youth Leadership Summit in Malta, (near Italy) from October 4-6, 2017.  Out of many applicants, they were selected and if they can make it there, they will likey be the youngest participants at the Summit.  They received a gracious financial award from Via Senti to cover their accomodations and almost half of their airline tickets.   We are in need of  a little more financial assistance in order to make this happen for them.  We, the parents of Miel and Dilluna humbly ask for any donations to help support their participation in this amazing opportunity.  We are extremely grateful to you our friends and family for any amount that you can donate to help us get them there.    

Taken from the SOA website:  
"Our Ocean, An Ocean For Life Leadership Summit will bring together the next generation of entrepreneurs, political and civil society leaders, scientists and researchers to brainstorm and develop solutions to conserve and sustainably use #OurOcean, for present and future generations.  100 competitively-selected youth participants from around the world will be invited to attend this year’s summit. Youth leaders will have the opportunity to showcase and gain valuable support for their proposed ocean solutions. During this two-day event, the students will participate in workshops, develop action-oriented strategies to implement ocean commitments in their respective communities, and strengthen their leadership skills.  High-level ocean leaders from the Our Ocean 2017 conference will meet and discuss innovative ideas to protect the oceans with the youth participants. Youth leaders will also be invited to join the main conference on its second day – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to network with world-renowned ocean experts."
