Soldiers helped education of Papuan local community

Ilustration of Education (Doc:Lions Club)

The Indonesian soldiers are mainly tasked with securing peace and stability in the country’s easternmost provinces. However, they alongside also live and mingle with members of local communities, thereby offering them a close glimpse into the challenges faced by native Papuans in their day-to-day lives.

The two provinces are reeling from a shortage of teaching staff on account of the fact that native Papuans not just reside in coastal areas but also in remote mountainous and hilly areas.

The residents of Sota Village are thankful and glad that the mobile library service is being offered by the border security task force.

“We thank the task force personnel for their care for our kids,” stated Alfons Katop, a resident of Sota Village in Sota Sub-district, Merauke District, whose administrative area is part of the Indonesia-PNG border area.
