Finding Life’s Purpose and Creating Meaning in their Lives

Appreciating the experience that change starts with me and the youth workers in IofC Indonesia have reached out in their workplace and beyond to create a network of friends who as a growing team, attend training and workshops on integrity and inner leadership. IofC Indonesia is run and managed by young leaders with a growing network of new members.

Neas Wanimbo, Youth activist for education and literacy in Papua.

Neas Wanimbo is one of the figures from the province of Papua, he was born from a poor family because his parents are just ordinary farmers, he has succeeded in his education, and now he has helped many people, especially indigenous Papuans.

He did this because he realized that in Indonesia, especially in Papua, The reading interest was still very low, he felt there is limited access to education in Papua. Especially in remote areas and mountains.

From the above background, then he took the initiative to build a library in one of the schools namely Hano Wene YPPGI Elementary School in 2017. This school has an empty building so he used it to be the first library in Papua, especially in Yahukimo Regency.
