Fund raising for an indigenous language school in Vanuatu

Monolingual schooling in English is a contributing factor to the loss of indigenous languages (see Bromham, Hua, Algy, & Meakins 2020, and Bromham et al. 2022). This is why initiatives like the one by a South-Pacific community is so important. Please spread the word and consider taking part of it!
