Untuk sekadar mengingat bahwa kami ada di sana! Yayasan mendokumentasikan kegiatannya melalui film dan juga mengambil banyak foto. Ini beberapa di antaranya!
The foundation fight against the pandemic Covid-19 full swing!
We no longer count in hundreds of kilos but in tons now. Tons of food, vegetables, fruit, rice, sugar, cooking oil, spices, peppers etc … But also hectoliters of hand sanitizer, hundreds of soaps or masks (handmade) or donated by friends elsewhere, and thousands of information brochures we print and tons of words, feelings we put in each of these “bags for life”, survival bags!
Thousands of recyclable bags, filled with essential goods for life, that the foundation has offered for almost a week.
In response to the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak, Kawan Baik Indonesia Foundation and Fair Future Foundation are taking basic level action to help local communities who are impacted on their health and on the socio-economic level. Public health should come first, economics can come later. But until now the government put the economical consideration first. Fair Future, Kawan Baik Indonesia, and the Good Friends will support the community with daily-income and people in need affected by the epidemic of the COVID-19 by giving some fresh materials nutritious foods, sanitary kits and right information about the COVID-19.
Some new picture of their work in East Sumba – End of February 2020.
As Kawan Baik aims to contribute to the development in disadvantaged areas, we need to map out the most pressing issues in every area where we work. Nevertheless, it is sometimes a difficult process to define what the real problems are, to decide what should be prioritized, and to find the most effective method to solve the problems. Therefore, we initiate a photography project, through which we attempt to do the process in a creative way by engaging local children and understanding the problems through their perspective.
Malnutrition and infant mortality are high! The women are spared walking to the well sometimes far away. Imagine having to walk barefoot for hours in treacherous, dangerous terrain just for a glass of water.
During one of our visits, a woman said: “We do not have enough water to cook and we can not wash every day, once a week. I have to walk 12 km to the well and back, or I have to pay Rp.5k for a 5-litre water bottle, which will not last a day “.
let’s do something together to change this!
We start to rebuild in February 2020 and launching in March 2020!
The school we are looking after in Mbinundita (Sumba East) was completely destroyed by a storm on December 18, 2019. The Foundation, therefore, undertook to rebuild it before the end of March 2020. More than 50 children from this very remote area, have no more school and we all cry, simply because it is a real drama for this whole rural community, which lives without direct access to water and without electricity. We took this school under our wing in November 2019, touched by the poverty and the kindness of this extraordinary population.
On January 10 and for two days, we went to Lapinu, a tiny village, nestled in the middle of nowhere, located east of Sumba Island, one of the poorest regions of Indonesia and Asia.
As you know, we organized a small program to celebrate Christmas with the children and the population of this village, during our week of work on site. We have indeed three programs that have started almost at the same time in East Sumba.
For the Christmas party in Lapinu, we have prepared a festive meal: Spaghetti and homemade Italian sauce, prepared by all of us. The village has no water or electricity, it was a real challenge for all of us, but this challenge quickly turned into a real success.

Sumba Photo Project will be one of our brainchilds. In this project, we will teach local children about photography,
