Treasurer

“At Hapin’s we have the good practice to volunteer for social activities in addition to our regular jobs. After an eventful period of political involvement I was looking for an original goal. Because the thread in my career is finance and financial policies it was an obvious choice to become a treasurer. A good friend of mine hinted that Hapin was looking for one. During the first board meeting I attended, it was immediately clear: after the short substantial discussions about the agenda I was happy to be a listener to a series of lovely anecdotes about Papuans in the Netherlands and in Papua.”

Secretary

“During my training period at the Bali Bank in Indonesia in 1999,my interest was aroused and confirmed in colonial relations. Therefore I chose the study “ International Relations”at the University of Groningen. My final essay for my doctorate “Unfinished Business” was about the Dutch-Indonesian post-colonial relations and the New Guinea Question. In this manner I became acquainted with the Papuans’ fate ,which has my deepest sympathy. As a member of the Hapin Board I hope to put my knowledge of this turbulent history to good use and to be helpful to Papuans.”

Member of the board

“I feel involved with Papua and the Papuans. In the summer of 2007 I witnessed the difficulty for the Papuans to keep up with the quick development of their country with my very own eyes. Every bit of support from home and abroad is needed to realise that Papuan stay connected to modern society. My contribution is to serve as a Hapin Board Member. I would like to make my knowledge and capabilities to good use with this organisation with a rich tradition and great network. Preferably with specific support projects.”

“As a small boy I have experienced the transfer of Dutch New Guinea to Indonesia. That triggered a strong involvement with Papua. As a member of the Hapin Board I hope to contribute something to a fair and just existence for this marginalised people.”
