US charity Habele backs new and tradition technologies in Yap

Updated 14 November 2012, 18:32 AEST

A small US based charity called Habele that operates in Micronesia has been officially praised by Yap State Legislators for its work there.

The Speaker and Governor both communicated their belief that targeting support for students in intermediate and high school grades remains the best use of the charity's limited resources.

The Council of Tamol and other traditional leaders encouraged Habele to expand its mission to serve all economically disadvantaged students, rather than only those from outer and distant lagoon islands.

Habele's directors and supporters have just completed their 2012 listening tour in Yap State, to assess how the projects are working and how they can be improved.

Steve Rice asked one of the Habele Board Directors, Neil Mellen to describe a listening tour.

Presenter: Steve Rice

Speaker: Neil Mellen, Habele Board Director
