Last but not least: Ursula, the youngest in the sewing class. She has just completed her SMP (similar to junior high school). Although she has great potential as a seamstress, the trainers are eager for Ursula to finish school first. Once she has completed the SMA, Ursula will have good opportunities to find paid work.
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.
