Established in 2014 as a public benevolent institution, IEF’s mission is to provide a successful community-based model that empowers displaced Indigenous peoples in their development of sustainable Indigenous educational solutions to improve future health, wellbeing and livelihood. Since 2009, IEF Founder has been working with Indigenous peoples in the Mentawai Islands developing IEF’s model from the ground up and empowering the Mentawai to initiate their own cultural education program to alleviate poverty. This program now spans across three Mentawai sub-districts, employs 10 staff and 12 program teachers.


IEF’s four guiding principles are: research, engagement, empowerment and accountability.
