Marine Reach Vanuatu (MRV) is a Christian, interdenominational and international organisation part of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) movement. The vision of Marine Reach Vanuatu is to disciple the nation of Vanuatu to know God and walk in his ways. 

In 2016, Marine Reach Vanuatu established the Family Care Centre (FCC) in Teouma Valley, just 20 minutes from the capital city of Port Vila. The FCC’s mission is to serve the people of Vanuatu by demonstrating God’s love and values through providing medical and dental care, community and personal development, and YWAM courses including the Discipleship Training School (DTS).

The FCC features classroom and administrative facilities, accommodation for volunteers, teams and students, a medical and dental clinic, and a recreational field for the community. It is a hub for community, health, education, fellowship, and spiritual development.

At the core of Marine Reach Vanuatu is the value, “To know God and to make Him known”. This statement is the essence of Marine Reach Vanuatu’s worldview. We believe that we are called to “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and then to love our neighbour as ourselves” (Luke 20:27).


The Family Care Centre is not  just a facility to change the lives of individuals , but also that of the nation as a whole. Working closely in support of Government agencies our aim is to provide a Christ-centered support system for families suffering from domestic violence. Training, medical, spiritual care and our “keep Safe” programs in local schools makeup the four basic components of our program.

Your partnership is crucial to see us move forward every year in touching the lives of hundreds of women and children who have so much potential but so little opportunity. Your one off or monthly donations will make a big difference in allowing us to make a difference.
