It Starts with the Community.
We create shared solutions with local communities.
Community-business SERVICES and SMALl MICRO-ENTERPRISES (SMEs)
Business services are provided through a four-step approach to enhance and kick-start community Small Micro-enterprises (SMEs). We facilitate green prosperity through:
(i) identifying & intensifying new businesses and sources of income,
(ii) asset-based inputs and training are provided to kick-start businesses,
(iii) community capital is built by creating savings and loans programs,
(iv) providing mentoring and life skills coaching to promote long-term sustainable development.
Our proven 4-step approach has reached over 3000 households (>13,000 individuals) in Indonesia. Our business services reduce rural poverty and inequalities in rural communities. But we believe empowerment is not just about cash-economies. We utilize 2 other services in education and health to improve human well-being and promote conservation:
COMMUNITY EDUCATION AND LITERACY
We provide different courses for community-members with:
(i) no education background
(ii) primary school level only
(iii) middle school level only
(iv) high school level
We train local community-members to be tutors to administer these services. Our program primarily targets women and youth.
COMMUNITY HEALTH through wash
Wash, Sanitation, and Hygiene services are provided to promote health at the community level. Our community-health initiative integrates health, business, and education into conservation. This is our newest program and is still under development. Stay tuned for more details.
