Allan: news from Australia, he has visited 3 clubs to try to get funding for Gitgit water project but no lucky yet, so will try on his next visit.

Taro Composting program: the man called Wayan Wardika started his composting project in his village in Taro Kaja Tegalalang, he educated the villagers to separate the organic and non-organic waste, now he hopes RCBUS can contribute to give him the various repositories to collect the organic waste from every house in the village. We need to know more information about this before we decide.
