Emails from Wayan Wardika from Taro Village (around 30 km from Ubud) just built a TPST (Integrated Waste Management Site) called Rumah Kompos aiming to educate to local village to separate their waste from their household (organic and non-organic). When their waste is nicely separated, we pick their garbage up every 2 days. We have done the project for 28 days and found only 6 out of 45 are separating their organic and non-organic waste nicely. We found 2 major problems in this program :
1. Habits and understanding the impacts of plastic waste.
2. We need 2 physically different colour garbage cans to help them separate the garbage easily.
He will send a detailed proposal about it
Our guest, Dewa Widi spoke about his project: He started his learning center called Rumah Belajar Sadewa in his House in Tambaha Village in Bangli around 5 km north from Gianyar. He started teaching computers to the kids by only having 3 second hand computers. The kids are so enthusiastic to learn and when computers break down he teaches the kids English lessons, he also provides 3 boxes of books he got from his friend so the kids can read while waiting their turn to study, his problem is when the rainy season comes, all the learning center will be wet, so he is looking for something that can give shade from sunshine and keep away water from the rain, he also has a priority for a bookshelf and also a printer. This is such a great thing he has done, so if any of you can give some supplies for the learning center it will be great. Books, English tools, creative tools for kids etc.
Raffle won by Tika who gave it to Danielle!
Meeting closed at 7pm.
Next meeting Monday 12 November at Kakiang Garden Café, Jl. Andong, Ubud.
