Economic Programs

Through our operations and specific development programs, we seek to alleviate poverty and raise the living standards of the local communities in Merauke. We have constructed essential public infrastructure such as roads, housing, places of worship, and communal halls to increase accessibility and economic opportunities. Our economic program is focused on increasing market access for local craftsmen. We help promote the traditional Papuan woven bag noken to other Indonesian regions and international buyers, with all proceeds going to the Papuan women who hand weave them and their families.
