Born and raised on a tiny atoll called Enewetak Atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, I learned early in life that sea transport is crucial to survive with the vast sea all around you. With limited resources from our beloved islands, commuting to the center, Majuro Atoll, by boat is a necessity for all Marshallese living in the outer islands. As a new recruit of GIZ, it a privilege to be a part of this project as I believe will help enhance the sailing transportation more and help save our corals by promoting  more efficient and sustainable sea transport by means of building local canoes and using renewable energy technology on our shipping vessels.
