Child Aid Papua is a non-profit, public benefit organisation founded in June 2017 in Switzerland and under the name 'Yayasan Cahaya Anak Papua' in May 2018 in the province of West-Papua, Indonesia. Through education we enable children and adolescents in remote areas of West Papua to have better prospects for their future. In addition, our educational programs create awareness in order to protect the breathtaking nature of Raja Ampat. Since the opening of our new education centre in August 2019, our base of operations is Sawinggrai, Raja Ampat.
The Child Aid Papua family consists of two organisations. The Indonesian foundation (Yayasan) implements our local projects. The Swiss association carries the foundation and provides all resources. We strive to keep our structure as lean as possible to ensure that all money reach the correct and required destination.
