Ethical Tourism: Yacht Charters That Give Back
Construction of the Learning Centre that DUNIA BARU is building in the village of Sauwandarek is now 6 weeks in.
One of the project’s architects, Harris Kuncara who spent the first week on site working hands-on, said: “This project is special to me because of the impact it will make here in Raja Ampat. It is greatly rewarding to create a center that will give back making a difference in education and conservation in the region.”
“It is a unique project because it fuses modern design standards with traditional Papuan styles of building,” he added. “We have stayed true to the region by using locally sourced materials from the nearby village of Batanta.”
The learning centres will be open spaces containing educational materials where locals of all ages can read and learn.
The learning centre's not only provide an opportunity for guests to give back but offer a feeling of connection and commitment to the beautiful area they are cruising in.
Voted best charter operation in Indonesia two years running, DUNIA BARU is the ultimate vessel to explore the islands of Indonesia with.
