VITAL (Vernacular Initiative in Trnaslation and literacy)

As we were in Ukarumpa the leadership asked if we would go down to Milne Bay to help with VITAL. Tuula, who heads up the literacy portion of the course, was called away unexpectedly and is not able to teach or part. Gertrude was asked of she would fill in for Tuula. This delays our return to New Ireland for a month, but we decided to do so. VITAL is a similar program to NITI, being a clustered language project to provide training and support for Papua New Guineans to do the remaining translations in the area. This will give me more experience in the area of translation. I will have some pictures to post in the coming weeks.
