This donation page is directly linked to The Hooper Collective, a registered non-for-profit organisation. Your contribution will help aid community development, specifically three key pillars; Waste management initiatives, education programs and boat refurbishing.
How do you end generations of shark fishing that makes families just enough to feed themselves? You don't, you replace it. 'Project Hiu', Hiu being the Indonesian word for Shark, is an initiative to provide alternative incomes to fishermen in one of the largest shark fisheries in Indonesia.
Education is the underlining foundation for implementing longterm change. Project Hiu aims to educate future generations on sustainable business practice, entrepreneurship and language. For this to be possible we will require a full time English teacher at the school.
(English teacher salary = $45 per 1 Hr Lesson)
A significant issue amongst the community, is waste management, as seen in the image (below). Your generous donation will contribute to the funding of waste initiatives and weekly garbage collections. This will reduce harmful plastics entering our oceans.
Refurbishing Fishing Boats
A major factor in Project Hiu's eco-tourism initiative is ensuring existing assets are re-purposed for tourism use. To maximise experience and pleasure for 'paying' tourists Project Hiu aims to delegate a portion of its funds to the refurbishing operating boat resources, i.e. dive gear, swim ladder... etc.
