CROSS FIELDS is a Japanese organization with an international volunteering program, and in 2015 Pekerti began working with our second volunteer from Japan. The CROSS FIELDS program provides young professionals the opportunity to use their expertise in addressing social challenges that exist in society. Indonesia is one of the countries targeted by this program.
Our volunteer, Hiroshi Goto, has expertise in market research, and worked with us during January and February to help develop market access to Japan. To find out more about Pekerti, Hiro visited producers who make wooden and silver products in Yogyakarta. Following his visit to producers, Hiro was excited and eager to help develop our market access
“I was really impressed when the producers told me that they are working in order to create job opportunities for their friends and to cloth people. So now I am proud to be a Pekerti member!”, said Hiro.
