The "Vaka" Project, funded by Save The Children, began in April 1983, after 2 years of planning by Jack Lockett, Tuvalu Field Director for Save The Children, and Windworkboat consultant Jim Brown. This pilot project is intended to train Tuvaluans in the construction of efficient sailing craft needed for intra-lagoon trolling and transportation.
