• Women are the least empowered of Indonesia’s rural poor, and yet bare most of the responsibility for educating their children and maintaining the home.
  • The Plant Mordant Project establishes and supports women’s harvester groups that collect fallen Symplocos leaves, and pays women directly for their product.
  • The rate of payment for Symplocos follows fair trade principles and is better than people receive for the candlenut and coffee harvests that are the mainstays of their income.
  • The seasonality of the new Symplocos income means it does not replace any existing work, and so is a pure addition to household livelihoods.
