In this crisis, Indonesians are turning their attention to one of the oldest main sectors of the Indonesian economy: Agriculture. A gift that has only played a minor role due to tourism.
During our time in Bali, we also quickly learned that Bali's soil is very fertile. A harvest is possible there up to four times a year.
The Organic Farming Workshop by the organisation Harmoni Parahyangan includes the complete initial equipment of necessary tools, a composting plant, seeds and seedlings and professional supervision for one year.
The following costs have been incurred per family and per one-year programme: 114.17 Euros/ year.
The aim is to accompany the families until they can harvest for their own use for the first time after three months and can exchange or sell their harvest, seeds and seedlings after six months. A contribution to SDG N°1 No poverty and SDG N°2 Zero Hunger.
25 families from the village Selasih participated in a waste education programme in addition to the Organic Workshop.
A support to SDG N°13 Climate Action. Also carried out by Harmoni Parahyangan.
7 of these families will be supported by us for one year. For the waste education programme, this means: providing the waste bins and waste bags, collecting the waste, forwarding it to a professional recycling company and professional supervision for one year.
The following costs have been incurred per family and per one-year programme: 89.15 euros/ year. In addition, some of the families receive monthly COVID-19 financial assistance for daily needs for additional food, schooling and basic health care. The total financial support for the families amounts to 529.41 euros/ year.
We see this pilot project as a contribution to resilience building in the current crisis as well as for crises in the future.
We want to support another 11 families from Selasih with the waste separation and organic farming programme and a financial COVID-19 support for one year. The total cost for another 11 families is 8,060 Euros.
Currently during a waste bank campaign of our partner organisation Harmoni Parahyangan in Selasih:
The villagers are first told how to sort their waste. The recyclable waste is then weighed
and a small amount of money is credited to a kind of savings account.
In return, the villagers can buy seeds from local traders, for example.
A sustainable cycle that supports the SDG N°4 Quality Education and environmental
protection by SDG N°13 Climate Action in addition to SDG N°15 Life on land.
