Preserving the natural diversity and the sea shore from the abrasion because there arent any mangrove anymore and the currents from the ocean are too strong will be the main focus of the camp.

PROJECT: GREAT is taking part in the effort of protection, promotion and conservation of the heritage sites in Indonesia. One of them is Borobudur Compound. Borobudur is listed in the World heritage List UNESCO since 1991 (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/592). The main and still issue of Borobudur conservation is the mass tourism. At least three millions of domestic and international visitors step on the temple every year, this brings at least 150 million kg only from the weighs of tourists. The facts that the visitors step on the temple wearing different surface of shoes cause erosion to the stones. And the weather brings the unsheltered stones of the temple in higher risk of erosion. Therefore, it is important to organize sustainable actions to raise the awareness of the visitors. At the same time, the involvement of the local community into conservation activities for the temple has been a strong concern.
In cooperation with a local students club concerning Borobudur conservation, named the Young Guardian Club (YGC) Borobudur, this year will be the second year of GREAT and Borobudur Conservation Office to organize an international workcamp there.

This was a program to prove more space and better facilities for their students. All of the resources to build this school were obtained through public donation. This is due to the fact that the school does not require fees from the students. Some adult students who study in high school of Al-Ishlah and those who live in the shelter sometimes give their hands. Last holiday season, a group of students from other schools joined the construction work voluntarily to get things done. However, there is a lot more to be done. In this circumstance, GREAT and Al-Ishlah Foundation would like to call for volunteers who have strong will and voluntary spirit, healthy and strong body to come and give your hands and work together to build this school. Two international workcamps in a row are prepared to help out building this school. Manual activity doing construction works. Apart from this, a friendly and positive interaction between volunteers and kids/students who live there is an important element to do. We want this school to be built with love and global solidarity that can be felt by all kids. Kids will have this memory and value forever. We would like this value to be brought out and delivered between volunteers and kids as well as local workers there. Previous workcamp video can be viewed here.

Indonesien    GREAT-STV07    Pekalongan Vulnerable Children    23.08.-05.09.2017    KIDS/EDU   8vols
PROJECT: Pasir Sari, Poncol and Bugisan are areas in Pekalongan where children with little opportunities and drop out children live. It happens because of very little income of their parents who normally work in informal sector. A hard living in the city leads people to be really struggling to make a living. This causes that parents will continue to see their children as “money producers” and that they ask them to go down to street to beg money. Why children? Because people will normally feel more pity for children rather than for adults and thus will give them money. This situation puts the children at risk and makes them vulnerable. In fact, according to the convention of the rights of children, children have rights to survival and development. Including the rights of education, primary health care, leisure and recreation, cultural activities, etc (unicef.org/crc). Eager to contribute to fulfill as much as possible the rights of children living in the three areas with guarantee of sustainable action and mentoring to the children, GREAT organizes a combined program both STV/workcamps and LMTV. The hygienic situation and education are really low. The work camp should support the LMTV in creating activities with the children as well as the parents in Hygiene issues and how to raise their living standard. Also this workcamp will address other problems there to improve the situation such as to provide space for playing, doing sport, art, etc. In addition to this, a regular program led by our local volunteers group, GREAT of Pekalongan, so called Pusdaling – a mobile library on bicycle – is run every week. The workcamp will support Pusdaling as well with their fun reading activities.
The aims of the camp are:
1. Supporting LMTV in creating activities with Vulnerable Children in Pasir Sari, Poncol and Bugisan, long lasting hygienically education for children and parents, motivate drop out children to go to school again
2. Share experience on vulnerable groups with GREAT LMTVs
3. Experience and exchange the local culture with your origin culture for global friendship

Mangrovenpflanzungen als Kuestenschutzprojekt auf Java
Indonesien    IIWC1801    Mangkang Camp 18-1    16.01.-29.01.2018    ENVI/EDU   10vols
PROJECT: Mangkang is a fisher and farmer village located in West Semarang. This project has become an annual and continuous project organized by IIWC in answering the needs of preserving the coastal side of the North Java Sea in Mangkang. About 1,1 km costal line in the Mangkang area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, the cutting of mangrove by local people and heavy force from the river flows. Before, many kinds of fish and shrimps were living there, but now since the condition of the mangrove forest is getting worse, it is quite difficult to find the species anymore. Fishermen also need to go further into the ocean to fish and that means more work that they need to do in order to earn money. Mangkang is the project site for IIWCs World Tanabata Action of CCIVS UNESCO and Climate4Peace of SCI International. Preserving the natural diversity and the sea shore from the abrasion because there arent any mangrove anymore and the currents from the ocean are too strong will be the main focus of the camp. This project was implemented by the collaboration between IIWC Indonesia and the local community named BIOTA Foundation (http://biotafoundation.blogspot.com/). The aim is to initiate the project to protect the sea shore by planting mangroves and, to increase the awareness of the local people, the fishermen, and the local students to protect their environment as well as their future.
WORK: Planting mangroves and other trees on the beach, environment education, garbage management discussions with local people and local children, some physical activities to support the garbage management program in this area, school visits for environment education, green campaigning in city centre, and promoting the mangrove fruits as snacks or foods. A testimony of previous volunteer from Lithuania can be found here: http://volunteersways.blogspot.ch/.

Mangrovenpflanzungen als Kuestenschutzprojekt auf Java
Indonesien    IIWC1809    Mangkang Camp 18-2    28.03.-10.04.2018    ENVI/EDU   10vols
PROJECT: Mangkang is a fisher and farmer village located in West Semarang. This project has become an annual and continuous project organized by IIWC in answering the needs of preserving the coastal side of the North Java Sea in Mangkang. About 1,1 km costal line in the Mangkang area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, the cutting of mangrove by local people and heavy force from the river flows. Before, many kinds of fish and shrimps were living there, but now since the condition of the mangrove forest is getting worse, it is quite difficult to find the species anymore. Fishermen also need to go further into the ocean to fish and that means more work that they need to do in order to earn money. Mangkang is the project site for IIWCs World Tanabata Action of CCIVS UNESCO and Climate4Peace of SCI International. Preserving the natural diversity and the sea shore from the abrasion because there arent any mangrove anymore and the currents from the ocean are too strong will be the main focus of the camp. This project was implemented by the collaboration between IIWC Indonesia and the local community named BIOTA Foundation (http://biotafoundation.blogspot.com/). The aim is to initiate the project to protect the sea shore by planting mangroves and, to increase the awareness of the local people, the fishermen, and the local students to protect their environment as well as their future.
WORK: Planting mangroves and other trees on the beach, environment education, garbage management discussions with local people and local children, some physical activities to support the garbage management program in this area, school visits for environment education, green campaigning in city centre, and promoting the mangrove fruits as snacks or foods. A testimony of previous volunteer from Lithuania can be found here: http://volunteersways.blogspot.ch/.
