For more than 15 months, Yayasan Kawan Baik Indonesia and Fair Future Indonesia have been working together to prepare programs in rural areas of eastern Indonesia. The sustainability of many projects, the formation of micro-actions and the involvement of young people from the area in volunteer action require a place of life and activities.

Dear friends, dear Kawan, dear families, how are you? Hope you are doing well and are happy!

Access to health and education services unfortunately, is not a necessary right in Indonesia. For more than ten years, Fair Future Foundation & Kawan Baik Indonesia has a mission to develop, support and create humanitarian action projects related to education, training and health care in Indonesia.

Sumba

The landscape, which consists of hills as far as the eye can see, is undoubtedly remarkable, but it is also one of the island’s main problems; This makes access to health, education, water and electricity very difficult, even impossible in many areas and villages. Limestone soil and arid climate also cause difficulty growing fruit, vegetables or rice.

Waingapu, the capital of East Sumba, is the largest city in East Sumba. From there it takes two hours drive to reach villages and communities in rural areas of the island on rocky roads.

Therefore, Waingapu is the focal point of all our projects in Sumba, that’s where we develop projects, meet local authorities, arrange subsequent visits to villages or even bring in experts from various fields. Therefore, we need to have a place tailored to our current needs, which grows rapidly as our activities evolve.

Home for us, home for them

Kambera House: House means “residence” and Kambera is the name of the village. We deliberately chose the word “home”, in addition to being our future office in Sumba, it will also be a place of sharing, conferences, teaching, volunteer homes, places to exchange, find innovative ideas, all together with a shared vision; improving the quality of life of people living in rural East Sumba.

Linked Projects

  • Mbinu Dita – since August 2020 we have been rebuilding schools and community centers in rural Areas of East Sumba. Thanks to this project, 100 children will soon return to school. It will also be at the heart of our activities and projects with this community of about 300 families. We were unable to stay on site for more than two nights due to logistical reasons, no access to water and electricity;
    Therefore, Kambera House is a central point and is indispensable in this long-term project to organize, plan, and manage all Mbinu Dita projects from there.
  • First Aid Kit – A project that aims to bring first aid kits to every school in East Sumba. Indeed, due to its geolocation and terrain, sumba rural areas do not have access to primary health services. For example, simple scratches on the legs (children and adults are mostly barefoot) can quickly become infected and become significant injuries. To prevent this, Kawan Baik Indonesia and the Fair Future Foundation will provide first aid kits to more than 40 schools and train teachers on primary care care.
  • Charis – access to education and knowledge. In collaboration with the network of volunteers and teachers from the association “Charis”, we will hold trainings, conferences on subjects related to education, nutrition or health that will then be disseminated and taught in forty schools in East and West Sumba.
  • Water access – Kambera House will also make it easier to collaborate with experts, share knowledge and for learning needs. One of the main points is the lack of access to water; difficulty to rely on rainwater; Therefore, we want to research and develop using island resources, ways to access clean and safe water. This is a long-term project that requires a “base camp” and a suitable and functional place.
  • Permaculture – One of the greatest assets of this house is the land on which it stands; large and suitable for cultivation, we will make the garden in collaboration with permaculture experts; The harvest will make it easier for us to cook for the volunteers and the surrounding community. We will also conduct training on nutrition, permaculture, experimenting, and finding answers on how to cultivate this calcareous soil and adapt to the island’s climate which only rains two months of the year.

Kambera’s house will be at the heart of the project; teacher training and follow-up will be conducted at this “base camp”.

We thank you for your support and kindness in the actions of the Foundation in the outer and rural areas of Indonesia. People need you, all of us.
