Donate to Schools Noumea, Lifou, Vila

Doing the Pacific Dawn Cruise early next year and my daughter would love to donate about 20 books to other school kids in pacific islands for age goups about 9 - 12 years. All in english. Any suggestions who to contact - would prefer to contact schools directly to cut out charity middle man??

Are you going to Dravuni Island? We did this cruise last year and there is a school near the jetty on Dravuni Island. The island is quite isolated with only a few hundred inhabitants and everything has to be brought in by boat. I think you were welcome to go into the school and grounds if I remember correctly. We spent most of our time on the beach watching our nephews play football with one of the little local kids and gave the little boy the football as a parting gift.

I'm also interested in doing this, not sure where the schools are in relation to the tours etc on the islands though.
