Fu Fei - GSF's Inter Island Transport Boat

In 2012 with the financial support of a private donor, GSF purchased a locally built wooden transport boat to move heavy materials. such as sand, gravel, stone and regular cargo. She was renamed Fu Fei, or Flying Happiness in Chinese, after the donor's daughter. We are pleased to report that this has proven to be a useful addition to  community life, providing a faster and more economic option to transport building and other materials for the Foundation, the School and community members who have building projects and need materials.. Providing employment for a local captain and crew of three, this small business is operating profitably, including repairing and maintaining the vessel, and is providing a small annual contribution back to the Foundation.

The donated motor is not essential for Fu Fei's operation, and is currently being used by another boat Kris Roi, thus also raising funds for GSF whilst providing a useful ferrying service for personnel and goods when Fu Fei is busy carrrying sand and heavy cargo. This system  is under Phelix's personal control.

These businesses are first steps to developing a sustainable system of financing for the community, the school, and the local population.

Donated sails, rope, fittings and outboard motors have helped achieve these ends - but they need to be replaced as they wear out. Sailors - If you can help by donating goods, sailing deliveries to Ile a Vache, or specified donations please contact us!
