Nele Schmidt of Product Development at Oxfam Shop Australia visited some of Oxfam’s partners in Yogyakarta on 14-19 January. One of them was Pekerti, whose staff had the opportunity to meet and join her on her visit to Pekerti’s producers in Yogyakarta on 15 January.
Ukrumah accompanied Ms Schmidt to visit producer Kelik, who works with water hyacinth in Nanggulan. She similarly visited Mr Harso who is experienced at producing recycled household paper. Mr Hartanto also received a visit and the chance to display his process of making place mats from recycled paper.
