A local support team in Indonesia: MALUKU COMPETENCE
Supporting local response in the Moluccan Islands
Maluku Competence is the local support team of The Constellation in Moluccas.
We aim to encourage and develop local resources to improve life conditions. We recognise the importance of local poverty reduction, community empowerment and additional education.
Maluku Competence supports and connects communities that are responding to the challenges they are facing. The initiatives we support include 'Green Moluccas', 'Eco Maluku' and 'Rumah Belajar (learning gardens).
As in the rest of the Constellation, SALT is our DNA!
Maluku Competence Programs
Green, Clean & Healthy
Maluku and surrounding provinces struggle with an alarming litter problem. Litter threatens both the immediate environment of the residents, and is detrimental also to the attraction for visitors.
Green Moluccas calls for attention, to stop this growing environmental threat. We connect and support local responses.
Community Based Tourism
Learning Gardens : Rumah Belajar
The learning gardens, or Rumah Belajar in Indonesian, as we envision it, should be places which are open to everyone who is interested to freely enjoy high quality education on sustainable living.
Our plan to create Learning Gardens is inspired by Mr Eli Kissya 'kepala kewang' (translated: keeper of the forest) of Haruku Island.
