Since 2019, Ruang Terampil Sepatokimin embrace the leprosy survivors community in Desa Liposos, Pakunam, Singkawang, Kalimantan Barat, Indonesia. The negative stigma attached to the lepers do not automatically vanish as survivors are stated cured. Social discrimination becomes their scourge once these survivors make a come back to the society. Survivors, whom mostly work as farmers, often being treated differently and find hardship selling their crops in good value.

In order to promote survivors of Ruang Terampil gaining proper acknowledgement, Sepatokimin Initiative designs inclusive training and community building materials to open up wider opportunity to the locals. Ecoprint is chosen in response to Singkawang diverse plant varieties to produce natural dyed motives. Besides, ecoprint does not require delicate hand skills like other craft techniques which helps survivors in Ruang Terampil to learn and follow the production process more easily, despite their physical limitations. Natural dyes and fabrics used in ecoprint also minimize environmental damage to the land soil where survivors grow their crops. Today, twelve households have joined and continue evolving with Sepatokimin Initiative.
