  • Example of a completed Bintan Community Involvement Project in an orphange – 3 days
  • At the orphanage, laying cement on the front of the orphanage, building a goat house (to house two nanny goats that were donated), tilled and prepared the land for a vegetable garden and planted crops.

    A campfire event was held for the orphans with a barbecue, lucky draw for the orphans, individual group performances, mass dancing, and cakes to celebrate the birthdays. The sight of smiles and the sound of laughter made everything so worthwhile.

    When it was time to bid goodbyes, we formed a line from the campfire to the buses. As the orphans made their way to the bus, they shook our hands and brought our hands to their foreheads as a sign of respect and to thank us (a gesture known as ‘salam’). That tear-jerking moment truly touched all hearts, and made it even harder to say goodbye.

    CIP in Bali:

  • John Fawcett Foundation
  • The Foundation works in cooperation with Indonesian Provincial and district governments to conduct its humanitarian programs, working exclusively with the poor and offering its services free of charge. The Foundation grew out of a number of Rotary projects established by its namesake, John Fawcett, in Bali, and is best known for its Sight Restoration and Blindness Prevention Project, incorporating the Mobile Eye Clinic for Cataract Surgery.

    But the John Fawcett Foundation is committed to more than sight restoration. Other projects include a Children's Corrective Surgery Project which covers cleft lip and palate, orthopaedic and facial reconstruction surgery, an Education Assistance Program, a Wheelchair Project, Assistance to Desperately Ill Children and Young People, supply of medical and surgical equipment to hospitals which treat the poor, and a Tuberculosis Training Project.

  • Yayasan IDEP
  • Yayasan IDEP is an Indonesian non-profit foundation that was formally established in Bali, Indonesia in 1999, at the height of Indonesia’s economic crisis. IDEP’s objective was to respond to urgent needs for sustainable food production and resource management, while conveying the importance of environmental education for sustainable living.

    Between 1999-2000 Yayasan IDEP successfully conducted several Permaculture Training of Trainer Courses, with the assistance of the some of the world’s most acclaimed Permaculture Trainers. IDEP facilitated the certification of over 200 people from throughout Indonesia. As the result of these courses, various Permaculture related projects have been initiated nation-wide.

    After 2000, Yayasan IDEP applied the knowledge gained from feedback of original pilots to develop its own community based sustainable development pilot programs. It began testing innovative approaches to raising environmental awareness through public awareness media campaigns and curriculum development, while disseminating practical solutions to environmental, social and economic problems within local communities.
