MAS Disabilities Training Program

MAS places a huge amount of importance on providing training opportunities for disabled people so that they can learn a new skill and become financially independent. This scheme teaches people with disabilities how to create various types of handicrafts using natural materials which can be done in their own home. MAS is committed to creating an inclusive workplace environment as part of the Dan Liris Groups’ new mission and vision to be fully sustainable in every way that they group operates.

Using Water Hyacinth Plants For Handicrafts

The Water Hyacinth plant, which grows wild in lakes, rivers and swamps, can inhibit the growth of organism below it, if it is not monitored. Left unchecked the rapid growth results in ecological damage. The stems of the plant can be dried using natural methods and turned into a material used for making beautiful handmade baskets and other handicrafts.

Using Banana Bark as a Raw Material

Banana trees only flower once and when they are cut down, the bark is often discarded during the banana harvesting process when in fact it can be treated, and processed to become rope that can be used for making beautiful handicrafts. MAS makes uses of this excellent waste produce to use it as a resource for weaving handicrafts such as baskets and stools that are sold locally and are sought after on the international market.

Using Yarn Sizing Waste For Handicrafts

Multiyasa makes use of all waste materials from parent company PT Dan Liris from the yarn sizing process to create new handicraft products as part of its mission to be fully sustainable in all aspects of the supply chain and production process. The waste yarn is twisted into rope which is used as a raw material for creating high quality handicraft products such as woven stools.
