ProjectStove
GoalPreventing lungs and respiratory problems
DiscriptionUnder the supervision of Professor Van Schayck of the Maastricht University, a stove was developed in India (Bangalore) with which no smoke enters the home.
In May 2019 we transferred two sets of molds for making stove's from India to West Papua. With such a set of molds, the local bricklayer in West Papua can make several stove's with local means.
The papuas no longer have to cook on an open fire. There will be no more smoke from charcoal fires in the houses. The risk of respiratory diseases is considerably reduced. Eye irritation and headache due to flue gasses are prevented.
PartnersYAPEMASDA and YADUPA - local foundations in Jayapura and Biak respectively.
BudgetThe molds (6 metal molds per set) were made available thanks to Professor van Schayck.
RealizationIn the summer of 2019 we transferred two sets of molds to the village of Opiaref on Biak and the village of Tablasupa near Jayapura.
Please view the photos of this trip
In 2020 we want to go to West Papua again to see the use over time and to provide additional help if necessary.

ProjectMangrove coastal planting
DoelDevelopment of mangrove ecosystems
OmschrijvingTropical shores of mangrove forests form a complex ecosystem. They protect the coast against erosion, act as a filter for coastal waters and thus provide a nutrient-rich breeding ground for a wide variety of marine animals and other wildlife. Communities living in and around these forests depend on this natural resource for their livelihood.

We will now have to act to protect these essential ecosystems and the communities that depend on them.

ProjectWebshop with articles from the Tropics
GoalOnline sales of products from West Papua
DescriptionBy selling products from the tropics we stimulate the (small) local economy. We want to include coffee from coffee farmers from the Baliem valley in the assortment. In addition to stimulating the local economy, we also offer more financial opportunities with the web store for the projects with which we want to further improve the prosperity and future of the papuans in West Papua.
At start-up it will not be easy to match the purchase of our web articles with the expected turnover. In addition, we will have to look carefully at how we set up the return process.
PartnerVolgt
BudgetRequired start budget is estimated at 10,000 euros
PlanningDepending on the choice and delivery of products
