Project Arso PapuaThe village Arso IX lies near the border with Papua New Guinea and is populated by transmigrants from all parts of Indonesia.

Even the Papuans who live there are mostly newcomers. They works as day laborers on oilpalm plantations. Because this work does not provide them with enough income, they farm vegetables to increase their income. In addition, they have formed a group to work together to begin a pigsty. It is a special group, because it consists of Papuans from eight different tribes. Since it is often difficult to get two Papuan tribal people in line, this is an interesting and promising project that receives support from Hapin.
