We provide community-based services that reduce socio-economic inequalities through the conservation of nature. We believe it starts with the community, and integrated conservation that both benefits humans and the environment is essential for the future of our planet.
A Commitment to the Community
Our model is called the Conservation Cooperative Approach. These are bi-lateral partnerships between Planet Indonesia and villages living in tandem with biologically diverse ecosystems. Through these partnerships communities receive much needed services in three sectors: business, education, and health, while creating new conservation management plans. Below is a list of the various services and aspects of this approach:
Community business and micro-enterprise
We provide business services through our flagship 4-step approach to kick-start and enhance Small Micro-Enterprises.
community literacy and education
We provide four levels of tutoring to reduce inequalities in rural communities through improving access to education.
coastal and marine management
We work with communities to manage mangrove forests and restore coastal fisheries.
community health anD REPRODUCTION

LAND AND FOREST MANAGEMENT
