This project will build new headquarters for Bible Translation work in Vanuatu and relocate the Bible Society South Pacific (BSSP) Translation team there. Capacity Building training for project management will also take place there.
The translation of Bibles into 16 major languages within Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Tonga and Samoa are the major needs that will be met by this project. Currently, there are major project coordination issues and relational strain caused by cost, distance and isolation.
There is a great need for BSSP to restructure, to ensure sustainability, continuity and productivity, especially with its Bible Translation work.
If the appeal is oversubscribed or the project changes due to unforeseen reasons, we will reallocate remaining funds to similar projects.
