Helping to reach the last mile – SeaTrek Sailing Adventures partners with Kopernik

The collaboration will empower and instantly change the lives of thousands of families by distributing clean energy technologies to remote Indonesian communities.

Munich/Bali, October 27, 2017: SeaTrek Sailing Adventures is proud to be working with Kopernik, a Bali-based non-profit organisation committed to expanding clean energy access in the last mile – the most remote, underserved and hardest-to-reach parts of the developing world, including Indonesia. Since 2010, Kopernik has reached more than 400,000 people in 25 countries with simple, yet innovative, clean energy technologies.
SeaTrek Sailing Adventures distributes clean energy technologiesFor its part, SeaTrek is increasing Kopernik’s reach and establishing a sustainable distribution network in Eastern Indonesia by carrying and distributing portable drinking water filters, solar lanterns, and other low cost technologies to villages and communities in the far-flung corners of the archipelago. This exciting new collaboration will empower and instantly change the lives of hundreds, and ultimately thousands, of families in isolated rural areas without electricity or access to clean and safe drinking water.

The delivery programme started on September 22nd, 2017 with the “East Indies Spice Exploration Cruise” from Maumere in Flores to Ambon in Maluku. It will continue through Indonesia’s entire eastern sphere until the end of the season in February 2018, before resuming again the following season. The company’s two pinisi schooners, the Ombak Putih and the Katharina initially transported 100 water purifying filters and 1.000 solar lanterns, which eliminate dependence on kerosene by providing up to four hours of bright light after a full charge. A Kopernik technician joined the first cruise to show the team how it’s done.

SeaTrek’s guests will be able to observe, first hand, the delivery to the villages, the installation and the simple training that the villagers will receive in how to use the products. To witness the astonishment, the joy and the social impact will be a truly unforgettable experience, which in turn will raise awareness of Kopernik’s global efforts to find effective solutions to reduce poverty. SeaTrek is thrilled to be part of such a positive life-changing programme.
