Last Friday, 15 September, the Yayasan Pendidikan Suku Mentawai was formally inaugurated along with our Mentawai Ecotourism and new office space in Desa Muntei.
The inauguration event is an important step to establishing the Yayasan within the Mentawai community, giving us opportunity to formally introduce our cultural education program and staff to our Mentawai government, village leaders and the wider community.
Thank you to everyone from the community who gave their time and energy to making this such a wonderful event, and to the Indigenous Education Foundation (IEF) for their ongoing support.
Here is a short video captured by our Yayasan PSM staff and edited by IEF:
