How can I help?

1. TEACH OUR KIDS

Supplies needed at the moment:
– A laptop to teach teenagers how to use it
– Whiteboard pens and erasers

Volunteers: English teachers (or interns) who want to give some training to the teachers of the project and teach the children during weekly English Class. People who want to teach things related to the conservation of animals and the environment to young people and children in the community will also be welcome.

Salaries: Although a lot of work is done voluntarily, we do like to give a contribution for the livelihood of the English teachers and the Team.

There are many ways to help us achieve our goals. Please contact us to find out about all the possibilities of becoming a sponsor.

2. DONATE A TREE

Help us to plant more sustainable trees for a cleaner environment.

Would you like to help reduce the number of palm oil trees in Sumatra and replace them with more sustainable trees such as Durian, Mahogany, Coconut and Rotan?

Donate a tree as a gift to yourself or as a gift to a person who cares about nature.

We offer several options:

1. Donation of IDR 150000 (approx. € 10 or $ 11) > we will plant 1 tree with your name tag

2. Donation of IDR 375000 (approx. € 25 or $ 27) > we will plant 5 trees with your nameplate, in addition you will receive a picture of the treeplanting

3. Donation of IDR 750000 (approx. € 50 or $ 53)> we will plant 15 trees with your nameplate, in addition you will receive a video of the treeplanting

4. Donation of IDR 1500000 (approx. € 100 or $ 110)> we will plant 30 trees with your nameplate, in addition you will receive a video of the treeplanting and for the first three years an annual update of the growth of “your” trees

Although the biggest part of the tree donations are being used to buy the actual trees, we also use part of the donations for buying fertilizer, tools and as a salary contribution for the team.

3. HELP US BUILD THE FENCE

With the financial support of Project Wings, we hope to produce and collect 3000 Ecobricks, which then will be used to build a fence around the yard of our elementary school. This should help to keep out animals such as cows and will create a safe and clean play area for the children.

To build this fence of Ecobricks we will need the following:

  • building sand
  • concrete
  • skilled people that can help us build the fence
  • financial resources to pay for the builders

People who have experience in building with Ecobricks will be very welcome.

4. DREAM BIG

We dare to dream and we dare to dream BIG…….

  • We know we will have to work hard.
  • We know we will be facing a lot of issues along the long road we need to travel.
  • We know we will have to deal with setbacks.

And most of all

  • We know we will need all the help we can get.

Picture this………

  • A piece of land
  • A shelter area for teaching Dream Class
  • A small accommodation with kitchen for volunteers and staff to sleep, eat and relax
  • An area for making compost
  • An area for a nursery, so we can grow the trees needed for sustainable farming

Having our “own place” will be the icing on the cake, the cherry on top…….

  • Dream Class will have a permanent place which is protected against sun and rain.
  • A volunteer program can be set up, which will give us extra manpower and, even more important, will give our children the opportunity to practice their English.
  • Teenagers can be introduced to working with tourists.
  • We can make our own compost, which will save us money and will help keep our village clean.
  • We can grow the trees needed to change to sustainable farming, which will of course save us money.

Should you have any suggestions to help us make our BIG dream come true, please do not hesitate to contact us.
