The Javatas connects personal stories, recipes and portraits of local residents of the Indische Buurt to products and stores of shopkeepers in the Javastraat. They are regularly organizing 'Boodschappentours' during which you can go shopping with the local residents for the ingredients in the Javatas. You can then make the personal recipes of the local residents with the local products!

She helps and organizes both sides by organizing markets, festivals or any other events. Besides these two functions she's also part of Javatas.
