Our efforts are ongoing, highlighted ones below.
New York, USA. Mentari supports survivors through an extensive list of programs designed to make a holistic impact in their lives. This includes services ranging from prevention programs, art for healing programs, culinary arts program, job preparation and assistance and peer to peer support.
Cianjur, Indonesia. Many women in this rural area do not have access to sanitary napkins. This is also an area where there is a higher percentage of young chilren being sold into marriages due to poverty, lack of education, income and basic services. JUARA supports Mentari in their program to teach the women how to create reusable, fabric sanitary napkins so they can personally use them, and eventually sell them for income. Women will be taught not only basic sewing, but also be educated on personal hygiene for health, and of awareness of their own physical rights and boundaries, while also empowering the community with viable alternatives to trafficking to generate income.
Mentari was founded in 2014 by Shandra Wowowruntu and a team of anti-trafficking advocates, driven by her own personal story as a trafficking survivor from Indonesia.
Shandra also frequently works as an advisor, expert witness, and speaker to government officials in the USA and government bodies internationally on recognizing signs of trafficking, advocating for laws to prevent and reduce trafficking.
JUARA partners with Mentari to support empowerment and education initiatives for women in Indonesia to prevent their likelihood and "targetability" for human trafficking. By enabling women in at-risk communities become financially empowered and educated about their own human rights, we can help prevent this pervasive problem at the source.
