In 2011, a healthcare volunteer arrived in East Bali. He was astonished by the breathtaking beauty of the region The volcanoes, dense jungle and rugged hillsides are home to a rich, complex culture and a vibrant community.

In 2012, in the village of Desa Ban, in a shed with a handful of people and a few sacks of cashew nuts, YAVA was born.   Now, over 300 people work at and help lead the factory in Desa Ban.  It puts into the local economy millions of $US as it pays for local ingredients and wages.

And, operations have expanded to include producing dried fruits and coconut strips in the village of Oka, in eastern Flores - an area with even greater needs at this point.

We hope you will join us as a frequent customer to help us continue toward our vision of healthy villages and people in eastern Indonesia!
