Primary School for a Pacific Island

A school where there is no school. Teouma Valley, an area outside the capital city of Vanuatu, does not have a school for its couple hundred children and many of them never get a chance to go to school at all. V2 LIFE Association (of which my wife and I are the founding directors) wants to change that. Teouma Christian Academy is running Kindergarten through Class 4 this year, but will have to grow to a full K-13 school in the near future. This 4+ acre piece of land has been offered to us for USD/CHF 80'000 - the Swiss Franc and the US Dollar are virtually on a 1:1 exchange rate. It has taken us over two years of negotiating with the owner, but he has finally agreed to follow through with the sale to us. The contract has been signed and the land title papers have been approved by the government lands department. We have until next Wednesday 13 November to settle. We are about USD 27'000 short of being able to do that.  Help us secure this land so that we can continue providing the children with education.
