Story

Throughout the entire months of August and September 2023, lace up your walking or cycling shoes, and hit the road, the trail, or even your treadmill to complete a 5k or more distance. Whether you choose to walk or cycle, you have the freedom to complete the distance on any day, or challenge yourself to do it every day if you're feeling ambitious!

Why Get Involved?

The Land and people of West Papua are under threat.

Although West Papua is one of the richest regions globally with regard to biodiversity and natural resources, it is now increasingly threatened with environmental destruction and militarisation.

The indigenous West Papuan people are facing human rights abuses and a progressive shutdown of free speech, leaving them poor and marginalised in their own land. Women and children suffer most, with very poor access to health and education and experience high levels of violence.

West Papuans want to build a peaceful society and protect their land and create a better future for their children.

Since 2006, Papua Partners has been working together with local indigenous organisations and communities in West Papua to respond to the increasingly challenging and complex social, political and environmental context.

By Walking With West Papua and supporting Papua Partners you will be investing in the future of the Papuan people and their land. Everything we do is in partnership with and designed by Papuans to generate transformative change which brings justice and peace to the land of Papua.

FAQs

How long does my walk need to be?

We suggest 5k or more on any day (or every day). The important thing is to have fun, challenge yourself and think about West Papuans and the challenges they face. Think about trying an iconic walk such as the Three Peaks, The 7 7s in the Mourne Mountains or the South Downs Way.

We suggest that you set a target of at least £100. If you want to raise more that is great!
