Transparency 

A core goal that has been set from day one of starting Project Hiu was to be 100% transparent with Our Crew. Our team know all too well the feeling of blindly giving to an organisation hoping the intentions and actions are taken out as proposed. Our goal is to breakdown these barriers and invite you 'The Crew Member' along this journey. By purchasing a Project Hiu product or donating, you will be accepted into a community dedicated to updating via email and social platforms on annual goals, progression and benchmarks, you will also gain access to first hand interviews of community members their feedback on the impact Project Hiu and its Crew Members is having on their lives. Please refer to 'Join The Crew' section for further reference to  where we are investing your donation/ purchase funds.

Post purchase process:

  1. You purchase/donate
  2. We allocate funds towards annual impact goals (Refer to 'Join The Crew' for more...)
  3. You receive constant updates on goal progress and community impact via email and social updates.

Empowerment & Responsibility

The intent and aim of this cap is to help raise awareness and financial aid and continue our projects mission; improve the health of our oceans, by starting with those responsible for its deterioration. By purchasing this product you become responsible for educating those in need of enlightenment on the severity of our oceans deteriorating state. 

What's My Actual Impact? 

Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation.

JOIN THE CREW - (WHAT SIDE OF HISTORY WILL YOU BE ON?)

Many shark fishermen in Indonesia depend on extremely volatile and dangerous income streams to provide for their families and loved ones. Today fishermen are forced to travel further and in some cases in illegal water to seek more prosperous grounds, this new threat of prosecution can be combated. By joining The Crew you will be assisting in the investment and acquisition of new 'sustainable income assets' such as; tourism, waste management programs, early learning to better equip the next generation for changing times and finally supporting the community during this transition by suppling food, clean water and any other financial burdens and malnourished necessities incurred from a history of volatile fishing and marine exploitation. 

WHAT ARE WE INVESTING IN? (YOUR IMPACT)

1) A sustainable tourism program, that allows local fishermen to acquire and re-purpose their assets (boats, crew, knowledge, rich biodiversity) to build new independent income streams.  

2) Currently locals have no waste initiative or infrastructure in place, resulting in (HIGH) threats of disease and sickness. Our Crew are investing in waste management programs that employ Xfishermen to collect, recycle and transport waste opposed to entering and being dumped in our oceans. We are also building the first 'toilet block' on the island.

3) Early learning; our crew are investing in a new preschool re-build and learning equipment and curriculums to better prepare future generation for change.

4) During Covid-19 transition has been difficult, by supporting, your allocation of funds will also go toward basic supplies like food (rice, noodles) that are deposited monthly to our community.

      The hat itself is like a beacon of awareness for this incredible NPO. I'm obsessed with the message it spreads and the comfy wear it provides.
