Yayasan Kawan Baik Indonesia (Kawan Baik) is an Indonesian medico-social foundation focusing on providing appropriate access for health and education services for disadvantaged people across the archipelago of Indonesia;

With their varied backgrounds and vast areas of expertise, the founders of Kawan Baik have agreed to join forces to assist people, who lack access to education and health services, due to severe geographical conditions and quite challenging access to their place of life;

What are they doing?

Kawan Baik concentrates its activities in the eastern part of Indonesia, particularly in Sumba Island, one of the outermost and disadvantaged islands in Indonesia that experience inequality in both physical and non-physical development. 

  • In the health sector, Kawan Baik particularly concerns on the issues related to nutrition, as well as women and children’s health, including sanitation and hygiene;
  • In the field of education, the foundation will mostly act on enhancing the capacity for school-age children through non-formal education, such as training and workshop;
  • It will also improve facilities that support learning activities, including libraries, reading centre, and classes that are established for specific objectives;
  • In addition, Kawan Baik will carry out efforts to help communities during emergency situations, such as natural disasters. Kawan Baik will be actively involved in disaster relief by focusing on health and education services.  And as you know, there are many natural disasters in this area.

Who are they ?

Kawan Baik Indonesia was established by a group of close friends, who have common interests in volunteerism and humanity.

  • With their varied backgrounds and vast areas of expertise, the founders of KBI have agreed to join forces to assist people, who lack access to education and health services, due to severe geographical conditions and quite challenging access to their place of life;
  • During the first year since its inception, KBI concentrates their activities in the eastern part of Indonesia, particularly in Sumba Island, one of the outermost and disadvantaged islands in Indonesia that experience inequality in both physical and non-physical development.

Kawan Sehat - Healthy friends programs

Kawan Sehat consists of agenda in the health sector as:

    • Nutrition for the community: Nutrition for the community becomes a crucial issue on the island, especially in areas that are located far from traditional markets or food-producing places;
    • Children needs: We believe that children are the agents of change. Good education and experience during childhood will positively affect their behaviour and way of thinking. The good things they learn at school will hopefully be applied at home, subsequently, influence their family members, and eventually bring positive impacts to a broader environment;
    • Women health: Women are often more susceptible to health problems. This is one of the KBI concerns, especially women in productive ages. In Sumba, with lack of access to proper health facilities, it is necessary to provide information and raise awareness on the importance of sanitation and hygiene, as well as a healthy lifestyle for women;
    • Drinking water and sanitation facilities: Residents in disadvantaged areas often found not to have proper sanitation facilities, due to lack of access to clean water, dry areas, and also awareness of the importance of sanitation facilities for their lives.

Kawan Pinat - Smart friends programs

Kawan Pintar comprises action plans in the field of education as:

  • Disadvantaged areas in Indonesia have many education problems, especially concerning unequal access to education, partly due to inadequate infrastructure and human resources;
  • PISA research (Program for International Student Assessment) shows the low level of Indonesian literacy, compared to all other countries in the world. In the research involving respondents aged 15-year-old schoolchildren, Indonesia ranked 62 out of 70 countries surveyed;
  • CCSU (Central Connecticut State University) released ‘World’s Most Literate Nations’ in March 2016. The ranking of literacy behaviour is based on five indicators of state literacy health, namely libraries, newspapers, education, and computer availability. This survey placed Indonesia in the 60th position out of 61 participating countries;
  • Furthermore, the 12-year compulsory education program launched by the Indonesian government has yet to be optimised due to lack of infrastructure and qualified human resources to provide access to proper education for people living in disadvantaged areas;
  • With all the limitations of the government in overcoming these problems, it is necessary for non-governmental, community or private institutions to contribute in providing solutions to facilitate, as well as access to support education for communities in disadvantaged areas.

Vision and Mission of Kawan Baik

Vision and Mission in the education sector that we would like to achieve under KBI Kawan Pintar (smart friends) are:

  • Establishing a community that is able to get themselves out of poverty by maximising their potential;
  • Helping to realise an intelligent and educated society;

To achieve our visions, we would undertake the following actions:

  • Providing knowledge and capacity building through non-formal education programs for school-age children by organising training and workshops;
  • Providing other useful skills to add insights and special abilities to improve the quality of human resources for society in general by organising training and workshops;
  • Increasing reading literacy levels for children in particular, and in society in general, by establishing or improving the existing facilities to support learning activities, including library and reading community/club;
  • Contributing to disaster relief by organising activities that focus on trauma healing in a disaster situation.

Others mission and programs by Kawan Baik

Photo Storytelling by Children in their homeland

  • About learning to talk and tell stories using a photograph as the media, capturing everyday moments experienced in the villages where children are living;
  • Every moment captured will be presented in front of their friends, to get comments and feedback, and find out what are the advantages and disadvantages to make improvements the next day;
  • By learning photography and learning how to tell stories, children are expected to make better habits, both at home, at school or in their village environment;
  • When the photos are displayed in the “exhibition hall”, visitors get a collection of interesting stories and can imagine how are the daily lives of the children in his village;
  • The data collected from the photo story projects become our secondary data, which enriches the primary data we obtain from the experts;
  • We can find out what priorities we might be able to help, to improve and maximise the potential in the region, by inviting friends to discuss and find solutions to work together.

A place to drop book donations

  • We welcome donations of reading books to be distributed to disadvantaged areas. We will further select and categorise the books we have received to ensure that the books to be distributed are suitable.

The revitalisation of Educational Facilities

  • Schools and reading clubs are the vanguards that facilitate children to be able to read, write, hone their ability to open horizons and explore through books;
  • Kawan Baik will make improvements on facilities of study both at school or alternative learning places, by prioritising emergency classrooms, or reading parks that lack attention.

The Mobile Library

Hopefully, we can have a vehicle to be operated as a mobile library that is able to move around the gathering points;
Assisted by the facilitator, the library is open for children and adults willing to gain knowledge through books.

Skills Training Program

  • A training program that is expected to be carried out regularly with different topics, according to the conditions and needs. This program is expected to help local potentials to grow and develop, and will eventually improve the quality of human resources.

Voluntary Teaching Trip (Volunteer Trip to Share)

  • Kawan Baik really want to invite people who have the same interests to jointly contribute to improving the quality of education;
  • Organising voluntary activities focusing on places where educational facilities are lack of attention. By conducting this activity, we can provide mutual benefits both for invited volunteers and children in the region;
  • We welcome volunteers to register, and we will conduct a further selection process to find the shortlisted persons.
  • We provide space for the volunteers to learn or tell stories about professions, motivations, or creative games. We will ensure that everything they do is safe and protected from conflicts of interest (such as political campaigns, covert business product campaigns, etc.);
  • In addition to teaching and sharing activities, we will also invite volunteers to travel to nearby destinations to introduce tourism potential, local potential, and diversity.

Expansion of New Project Ideas

  • We open opportunities for personal participation or collaboration between institutions for project ideas that we can realise together;
  • We can support each other, grow, develop and strengthen our project together to maximise the existing potential, in order to realise more effective and efficient assistance.

To conclude

The Kawan Baik foundation is followed by local health and social authorities, which is normal for the practice of medicine and education projects in all countries of the world.

The governmental social and medical authorities are our guarantors and all that we undertake is realised with their agreement.
