Boat Maintenance & Building Workshop

Since the establishment of Yayasan Kebon Sepatu Indonesia in 2007, the Board of Directors on Java has been committed to ensure the development of educational projects for various segments in society, which never had the opportunity to have formal education. Most vulnerable are the youngest, but also their parents – amongst them single mothers who were abandoned and who had been forced to provide for their dependents – or families in the lowest income groups.
During the preliminary studies two groups were in need of support; the vast farmers community, predominantly concerned with staple rice crops, and the fishermen – most of which had not even received the most basic skills of safety measures, like proficiency of swimming.
In setting up various educational/training projects, close cooperation with the local population is mandatory in ensuring success. To check feasibility, for example of the agricultural project in Ketare (Lombok NTB), farmers were invited to join a multi-crop training program, provided by the agricultural expert of the Yayasan Kebon Sepatu Indonesia, Mohammad Djaeni.
Progress on the boat- maintenance and building school – youngsters from 15 to 18 years old – is the main focus of our current visit and will be up and running in September 2019.
