The Millennium Cave Foundation
It is important in Vanuatu culture to support the Community and give every possible assistance to young people as they are the future leaders. With this in mind the Management of Millennium Cave Tours have set up a foundation to improve education facilities in the surrounding area.
When you do the cave tour, you're not only spending a wonderful day adventuring, you're also supporting the local community. The Millennium Cave Foundation is funded by profits from the tour and ensures that villages in the area also benefit from tourism.

Nambel Village near the carpark to the cave now boasts an excellent purpose built French Kindergarten (pictured right) already attended by 26 children. A qualified teacher has been employed all funded by the Foundation.
Millennium Cave School Project
This project consists of an English Kindergarten and a Primary School. It is situated at Lakruja Village on 21 hectares of land provided by the land owner, Pierrot Vatu. The school will be built over a five year period, and will mean the primary school children from the village will no longer have to walk the long journey twice a day to Saint Michelle School.
Samuel Andikar (pictured right) from Vunaspef village, the General Manager of the Millennium Cave Tour, launched the project in June 2013. The school will be attended by children from eight villages in the area.
