You will rarely see mama Kornelia (photo: left) without a smile on her face. This cheerful and intelligent woman brings a lot of energy in the sewing class group. Her husband has a job and her two sons participate in the hygiene class that Edo’s foundation has set up for children in the Asmat-neighbourhood. A family that works hard and seizes opportunities with both hands.
This story is part of a series that introduces you to six Asmat women who take a sewing class in Merauke. The initiator is Edo Mote, who has set up various projects for the Asmat community in deprived areas with his foundation Papua Mandiri 2050.
