Our community service program is addressed to the coastal and fisheries communities with more focused on subsistence fishers’ families. The program is set up to accommodate other involvement persons, groups, and institutions.

As the year 2020 is entirely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, all series activities of the community program will be implemented in 2021 located in the eastern border of the country (i.e Ayau and Mapia archipelagos).

The Island Border community service program will be integrated with the research activities and academic sailing training by students. To get more impact on the program, we will involve lecturers and students from university-based in Sorong.
