Papua Partners works to build the capacity of civil society in Papua, Indonesia to tackle poverty and injustice. We partner with local indigenous organisations to empower and improve livelihoods.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Papua Partners is committed to tackling poverty and injustice to transform lives in West Papua.

    We partner with local indigenous organisations and churches to empower and improve livelihoods in numerous local communities through the provision of technical support, organisational development and specialist expertise in land rights and forestry.

    It works through the values of:

    Dignity:
    We believe in the intrinsic dignity of every person. We work with all people in Papua regardless of race, gender, religion or politics. We seek to be an inclusive diverse organisation which celebrates difference and creates relationships of mutual respect.

    Empowering others:
    The focus of our work is to empower civil society in Papua to bring about positive change; transform lives. Therefore we strive to build the capacity of others rather than directly implement projects ourselves.

    Hope:
    Our hope is inspired by Christian faith and by the strength and resourcefulness of our partners and their communities. We believe that positive change is possible for the people of Papua and will seek to maintain a hopeful attitude that does not give up easily.

    Justice:
    We seek justice for the people of Papua where they are treated unfairly and will walk with them to enable them to overcome injustice.

    Integrity:
    We strive to be good stewards of all the resources entrusted to us, openly accountable for our work, systematic in evaluating our impact and effectiveness and professional in managing our resource
