Economic Empowerment

Sustainability initiatives need to be supported by a community of independent means. We assist female economic empowerment through entrepreneurship programs and the development of local suppliers and craftsmen.

Economically independent communities will have more power to control the fulfillment of balanced nutrition and health, which in turn will affect the quality of Indonesia's human resource in the future.

Merapi Project

The Merapi project aims to help victims of the eruption of Mount Merapi which occurred in 2010 and caused many residents to experience economic problems. In collaboration with the regional governments of Yogyakarta Special Region and Sleman Regency, we divided this project into two programs, namely dairy activities (integrated dairy farming) and non-dairy activities (Farming Income Generation Activity / FIGA). 

The Merapi project has metamorphosed into a livestock training center, especially for dairy farming. Throughout 2017, around 1,500 people came to the Merapi Project enclosure to conduct various types of training including apprenticeship programs, street vendors, comparative studies and also tourist visits. This program was later formalized as the 'Farmer Academy' or 'Farmer Academy' program.
