Almina Kacili is the head of Waifuna, the first women's group that manages the Sasi area, in Kapatcol Village, Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia. 

Sasi is an Indigenous customary regulation that manages local natural resources, both on land and at sea, within a certain period of time. Waifuna utilizes Sasi as a tool for economic empowerment for the women in Kapatcol Village. 

Sasi provides a sustainable mechanism for natural resource management, including preserving marine life, while also giving economic benefits to the community along the shoreline.
