ABOUT MITRA

Masyarakat Indonesia Timur Relasi Asing (MITRA) or the Eastern Indonesian Foreign Relations Association is an international equity-based youth movement localized across the 6 of the most disadvantaged provinces of Indonesia. All of these locations are found in the peripheral East stretching from the Wallace line to Papua New Guinea. The MITRA Association which was formed in December 2013 by local and international students in Timor Island now covers 12 communities based at various higher education institutions. As a result, MITRA membership is represented in the provinces of Nusa Tenggara Timur, Nusa Tenggara Barat, Maluku, Maluku Utara, Papua and West Papua. MITRA also has international members from Australia, Poland, Netherlands, U.S. and other countries. MITRA is the only localized international youth association which focuses on generating valued change and overcoming structural inequality and stigma in disadvantaged contexts in Eastern Indonesia.

Vision

“A world where communities in Eastern Indonesia have greater access to information and opportunities in order to become agents of change and overcome the challenges of development gaps, stigma and structural inequality.”

Mission

“Through its three pillars: Language, Internationalization and Environment, MITRA’s mission is to build and share, to act locally and to think and interact globally all for valued change for Eastern Indonesia”

In essence MITRA is a student association which aims to unite youth throughout East Indonesian Universities. This new association has been proposed as Mahasiswa Indonesian Timur Relasi Asing or (MITRA) or the East Indonesia Students’ Foreign Relations – (EISFR) Association.
