CHILD AID PAPUA
A FORGOTTEN TRIBE
A string of coincidences led us to the beautiful isle of Waigeo in Raja Ampat, where we happened to meet Jonas Müller, a young Swiss explorer who had originally arrived about five years before to explore the breathtaking fauna and – upon being asked by tribal elders – decided to stay in order to educate the Papuan youth.
After founding Child Aid Papua and building an educational centre in the mangroves in the middle of nowhere, named Sawinggrai, Jonas and his team now teach up to 150 children how to take care of themselves and how to preserve the pristine nature that surrounds them.
“We want to help them understand their role in this precious and unique ecosystem, so they can actively shape their environment’s future for the better… This is our mission and contribution for one of nature’s last gems”, is how Jonas describes his daily work.
Having seen their achievements first-hand on site and having witnessed their dedication and commitment, we as a company decided to support this project, for it serves as a constant reminder what people with the right attitude and aims can do.
