Sabu Raijua Regency is one of the regencies in the province of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. It comprises the Savu and Raijua islands, lying between Sumba and Rote Islands in the Savu Sea. Here in Savu, they produced some of the most pictorial hand-made textiles in Indonesia.
Savu Raijua is the only island that we haven’t had a chance to visit in the East Nusa Tenggara region, but we are proud to say that we are closely connected to the traditional weavers on this remote island and we are truly grateful to our volunteers here who have very kindly connect us to the weavers, and assist us with the glasses distribution.
After several attempts due to Covid restrictions, this month, we are delighted to have successfully distributed several glasses to the Tewuni Rai Weavers Group on the main island, Savu. We hope that these gifts from Connect Indonesia, The Charity, will come useful to help the weavers to produce more amazing Savu textiles.
We are truly grateful to our volunteer in Savu, Mrs Inapia Tededara, who has very kindly helped organised the distribution.
As always, can’t thank Olvira Ballo enough for her full support and dedication in arranging shipments, managing the distribution, and communicating with all volunteers as needed, thank you, Ira.
Our sincere gratitude to everyone who has made this distribution possible.
