Introduction

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.

www.facebook.com/share/p/xWZWs8Qn9zX5gqs7/Some facts about bamboo:

1.Fast Growth: Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant in the world. It has been recorded at growing 47.6 inches in 24 hours. Some species can even grow over a meter per day under optimal conditions. A new bamboo shoot reaches its full height in less than a year.

2. Oxygen Release: A grove of bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than any other tree out there.

3. Carbon Dioxide Absorption: Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide at a rate of 17 tons per hectare every year. It can act as a valuable carbon sink given how fast the plant grows.

4. No Fertilizer Required: Bamboo doesn’t need fertilizer to grow. It can self-mulch by dropping its leaves and use the nutrients to grow.

5. Drought Resistance: Bamboos are drought-tolerant plants. They can grow in the desert.

6. Wood Replacement: Bamboos can be harvested in 3-5 years compared to the 20-30 years of most softwood trees.

7. Building Material: Bamboo is incredibly strong and sturdy. It has been used as support for concrete as well as scaffolding, bridges, and houses.

8. Soil Stability: Bamboo has a wide network of underground roots and rhizomes that prevent soil erosion.

9. Natural Air Conditioner: Bamboo cools the air surrounding it by up to 8 degrees in the summer.

10. Invasiveness: Some species of bamboo, especially ‘running’ bamboos, can be invasive due to their extensive root systems, which allow them to spread rapidly. However, not all species are invasive, and with proper management, the environmental impact can be minimized.
