Our latest project is in Tunggilis, a village in the same ‘Desa’ (village area) as Sarongge, where we are working with the local community on our ‘Trees for Tunggilis’ tree adoption program.
Through this social and environmental program farmers and their families will plant productive fruit trees on their land, preventing erosion, increasing water absorption and reducing flooding in downstream Bekasi and Jakarta. Not only this, but as part of the tree adoption, each farmer will receive money management training and investment in an off-farm income generating activity. By increasing and diversifying farmers incomes whilst protecting the biodiversity of farms, this project will enable both the environment and the local community to thrive.
