Papua and West Papua remain the poorest provinces in Indonesia, with limited opportunities for employment, quality education and health care.
UnitingWorld works with our partner church GKI-TP and its development unit P3W to help alleviate poverty, improve nutrition and empower women and children. P3W currently provides skills training, WASH and disaster preparedness to several communities in the highlands and around Jayapura.
Through the project, groups of women are helped to grow vegetables like soya and kidney beans, spinach and kale in their gardens. The women use it to feed their families and also supplement their family income. The groups are also provided with education and training about financial management, helping them be able to better save money for education and emergencies.
