PAPUA, BeritaBhayangkara – After the post-evacuation where situation remains safe and secure, of which ended on May 18, 2024, the residents of Homeyo District, Intan Jaya Regency in Papua, returned to their normal activities. The Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) HABEMA Operations Command (KOOPS HABEMA), has placed Territorial Task Force (Satgaster) as the Intan Jaya Preparatory Territorial Command at the location. The Task Force has continued to try to help the difficulties of the Homeyo community, especially in providing basic services for the community’s needs, including educational facilities for children.

Initially, before the Free Papua Organization (OPM) set fire to the Inpres Pogapa Elementary School building, Homeyo District, on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, children from Homeyo residents and surrounding areas carried out the teaching and learning process in the school building. As a result of the burning action by OPM, now the physical building of SDN Inpres Pogapa has been razed to the ground, and all that remains is the rubble of building materials. This condition certainly makes it difficult for children and teachers to carry out the learning process. In order to overcome these difficulties, KOOPS HABEMA has invited residents to work together to clean up the rubble of the school building, as well as setting up TNI tents as a Field School on the land of the former Inpres Pogapa Elementary School building which was burned by the OPM.

Furthermore, on Monday morning, June 10, 2024, KOOPS HABEMA Territorial Task Force led by Colonel Arm Stefie Jantje Nuhujanan held the “PAPUA PINTAR” program at the Homeyo Field School, involving the children of Homeyo residents, who were accompanied by parents, traditional leaders, community leaders, religious leaders, youth leaders, and District Officers. The PAPUA PINTAR program was held through several activities, including the distribution of school uniforms and books, as well as learning activities and games led by Soldiers of KOOPS HABEMA Territorial Task Force.

“The safe situation in the Homeyo District has raised the enthusiasm of the community to prepare a better future, including educational activities for children at the Field School initiated by KOOPS HABEMA through the PAPUA PINTAR Program. This is one effort of KOOPS HABEMA to provide basic services for the Papua community to accelerate development in the Papua region,” said Commander of KOGABWILHAN III, Lt. Gen. TNI Richard T.H. Tampubolon, after receiving reports of the Field School educational activities in Homeyo.
