Between Sulawesi and the Philippines on the island of Sangihe lies the town of Tahuna. Sangihe is one of the 77 districts in Sangihe-Talaud district of which the capital is Tahuna.
There are many active volcanoes in this country and they often erupt several times a day. The soil is very fertile, and the vegetation is characterised by dense coconut forests with thick undergrowth. The total area of all 77 islands is 2070 km2. The life of the 240,00 inhabitants of the Sangihe-Talaud district is shaped by the sea and the sea is the reason for the population’s centuries of livelihood. Sangihe-Talaud’s inhabitants are mainly skilful fishermen who work with poisons made from plant roots, traps, fishing hooks, small nets or harpoons. The few tourists who come to Tahuna are mainly divers, who are drawn to the small island group by the wonderful underwater world there.
Sangihe-Talaud isn’t just an island paradise though, the population of the islands face a diversity of problems: isolation and overpopulation, overfishing and pollution, erosion and economic dependency on the main island of Sulawesi impedes the group of island’s own development. The predominantly Christian area of Sangihe-Talaud is home to a partner church of Mission 21.
