The establishment of Adventure Carstensz did not just focus on its tourism specialty in providing services for those willing to conquer Carstensz, but this local company built by a true son of soil also serves the people by also bringing in programs that are a part of Company Social Responsibility through its own Somatua Foundation. Pure intentions of moving the community around them towards finer insights including skills on leadership through education and also importance of health.
Somatua Foundation has been operating since 2012 and without a question is a non-profit organization with supports from various parties. One of its sponsors, PT Adventure Carstensz located at Timika is one of the loyal companies standing by Somatua supporting different programs aiming to boost maturation of the community.
It has become an ordinary matter for PT Adventure Carstensz to invite clients who are usually from out of the country, to visit the Reading Park of Kemala Somatua to interact with young Papuans who are there studying. In these activities, the climbers take part in studying along the students and donating school supplies to help further their studies.
The mood from the climbers is rather jolly, as the students feeds off it. Their enthusiasm fills the Reading Park of SP 2 Lane 3, as they enjoy their time with the “bule” – a moniker for foreign national. The students always try to catch the bules attention by singing English nursery rhymes, playing along and finally take pictures together for memory to bring along.
PT Adventure Carstensz as a local tour operator company of Papua will always contribute to the people of Papua in every ascend to the Peak of Carstensz. The company hopes these activities will give positive effect on the young generations of Papua and as well as expanding their insight.
