Equator Wind seeks to to import sailing vessels, to the island country of Kiribati, (pronounced Kir e bas). These vessels will become part of an inter-island fleet to better facilitate their commerce and culture.
These sailing vessels, with an almost zero carbon footprint, will be given directly to the people of the islands without hesitation.
Equator Wind's objective is to facilitate the unique island culture with all available resources at hand. With the assistance of solar, desalination, and xerotropic endeavors our helping hand is that of a close friend.
As conditions present themselves perhaps assistance may be granted to the construction of a college/university dedicated solely to the changes that accompany global warming and rising of sea levels.
Donate your vessel and she will be placed in the hands of a mariner for fishing, commerce hauling, family transport, domicile and research.
Kiribati is not a wealthy country. Threatened by rising waters, their land will soon be taken from them. At present their sacred family sites are being inundated and water resources destroyed. A major cost of their commercial livelihood is dependent upon fossil fueled steamer and imported bottled water.
