We have come to the eastern end of Nanikai village here on South Tarawa. The spot facing you belongs to the handicapped of Kiribati. Many disabled live here. It’s a centre that brings them together. It’s also where they hold functions such as feastings and meetings. Planning and organising activities (fundraising, etc) also take place here.

That big house (mwaneaba) is used basically for meetings, feastings and other activities, They also use it for sleeping when not being used.or at free hours.

It’s a perfect location for the disabled since it is quiet and away from the busy village areas of Nanikai. The sea (lagoon) is just beside them!

Thanks and come back for the next image.
