Hundreds of small islands are scattered across the vast Western Pacific Ocean. They are home to some of the most remote students on the planet.
Each island child –no matter how isolated– deserves the chance to reach their full potential. In the rapidly changing world that stretches far beyond the shores of their beautiful islands and atolls these students are true underdogs.
Diverse in culture and language, these far-flung picturesque islands are strategically situated. The Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau form the geopolitical crossroads of the Pacific. The islands’ dramatic role in centuries of global politics obscures persistent challenges of isolation, dispersion, and limited resources.
Habele’s educational programs effectively prepare Micronesian children to thrive both in their communities, and beyond the reef.
Literacy donations imbue children with a lifetime love of learning. Tuition scholarships expand educational access to the lowest income and most remote students. Robotics sparks interest in math and science, developing critical, creative problem solvers.
Established by former Peace Corps Volunteers, Habele is a US-based 501(3) nonprofit, invested in the future and potential of Micronesian students since 2006.
