OnTESOL Graduate: Making a Difference in West Papua

Teaching English in West PapuaMy name is Jasmine Togeretz and I work for the Raja Ampat Research and Conservation Center (RARCC) in West Papua, Indonesia. I teach English to several local Papuans who have been given the opportunity to train as dive guides for Papua Diving, a dive resort operating here in Raja Ampat. Papua Diving is sponsoring the RARCC in this “zero to hero” initiative, giving my students the opportunity to learn a profession in which to earn an income and make themselves marketable in the future for the growing diving and tourism industry in Papua.
