EcoXplorer, a boat
Delivering development to poor coastal communities in Indonesian Papua and Maluku.
Please help Econusa deliver hope to marginalized coastal communities in some of the most remote places of Papua and Maluku. EcoXplorer is a multi-function, traditionally designed boat that will underwrite the pathway to poverty alleviation by providing access to education for communities and market access for their products, including commodities and eco-tourism.
Living in some of the most remote coastal locations on the globe, many of these communities do not have inter-connectivity with the outside world, with transport options limited or non-existent. The EcoXplorer will provide that connection.
EcoXplorer will deliver education programs – particularly to young people – to increase community capacity and support communities to become self-sufficient, as well as access to markets to allow them to expand their subsistence farming into tradeable goods. The ship will transport cargo to the nearest ports, facilitating commodity trading and local ecotourism.
The boat is a traditional Phinisi Boat and was donated to Econusa. Econusa is raising funds to have it rebuilt by a traditional boat building team in South Sulawesi. Our vision is for a fully equipped multi-functional boat that can deliver education programs, transport social researchers and community workers, bring basic services to remote communities and cargo capacity to transport local products to the nearest commercial port.
Why donate? Because EcoXplorer will:
EcoXplorer will address poverty and underdevelopment for indigenous peoples living in the remote coastal areas of eastern Indonesia. It will serve as a local commodity transporter, ecotourism supporter, research and education provider while conserving traditional ways of life, forests and oceans.
