Helen and Nga from the Tearfund team had the privilege of visiting our partner Yasera in Papua, and were so encouraged by their work with the community.
Yasera works with seven villages within the Jayawijaya district of Papua with the aim of strengthening families and training people with useful skills, like agricultural training and also nutrition education.
In this area, communities struggle with issues including high rates of HIV, child malnutrition, domestic violence and community violence. There are also low rates of education and widespread poverty.
Yasera works alongside local churches to connect with families and walk alongside them to bring hope and transformation.
Watch this short video with Helen and the Executive Director of Yasera, Heidy Tamboto.
