Living Islands is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization, dedicated to serving the educational, cultural, and social needs of Micronesian communities since 2013.

Living Islands is a Cultural and Educational Network Organization supporting strong Micronesian communities everywhere, by celebrating and advocating for the diverse and unique cultures of the Micronesian people.

We form strong and permanent relations between local and international leaders, stakeholders, and communities through traditional storytelling, cultural research, knowledge sharing, community work, awareness building, and targeted educational programming.

We believe supporting strong communities is the first step towards strong and sustainable societies.
