#BangunMbinuDita - #ReconstruireMbinuDita

Help more than 65 children aged 8 to 10 return to school!

On December 20, 2019, the two-class school in Mbinu Dita collapsed due to a storm. By rebuilding a new school, the Foundation provides continuity of educational activity in Mbinu Dita. Hundreds of children aged 8 to 10 will benefit from this beautiful school. This population is far from any form of civilization. It is therefore essential for them that the school can be rebuilt as quickly as possible. And for the very rural community of this region, this new school will also be a community center in which the foundation will organize events all year round.

And now let’s give space to hope!

Hope? It is all of us who are in Sumba, on the site of the school that will live tomorrow. The hope is also that 75% of orders for reconstruction are placed with our suppliers. The hope is to know that by the end of October 2020 the new school will be built, more beautiful, and more solid than before and that the 65 children of the region will then be able to get there without having to walk for miles and miles. … Find out more here!

Dear friends, dear Kawan, dear families, how are you? Hope you are doing well and are happy!

As you now know since December 2019, the foundation has committed to rebuilding the school in Mbinu Dita which fell apart after a storm. Here we are a few months later, the project is progressing well but it has also changed a lot since the first estimate.

Actually, the initial plan was to “simply” reconstruct the two classrooms, a very simple structure with local materials. However, after several hours of discussion with local communities and the education department, we came to the conclusion that the needs were greater than that.

So we came back with a second project; a beautiful school, resistant, practical, and functional.  Above all, we have added a 3rd classroom, which will allow 25 more children to attend school, as well as a so-called “multi-purpose” room. This space will serve as a homework room; given that they have no electricity in their villages and that night falls at 6 p.m., it is impossible for them to study after school. This space will also serve as an artistic center and will be open to all the population of the surrounding villages to give courses, conferences, or even develop new economic projects.

However, after many discussions with local communities and the education department, we came to the conclusion that the needs were greater. Before the storm, this school consisted of two classrooms (1st and 2nd year), perched on the top of a hill. This school also has no water, no electricity. These children don’t have enough to eat and now, no more school!

This new project also, like the previous one, provides clean toilets with a septic tank, a workroom for teachers, photovoltaic panels which will supply the school with electricity as well as access to drinking water which will be harvested thanks to on the roofs of the school and which will accessible to all.

About the 3rd classroom, which will allow 25 more children to attend school, as well as a so-called multi-purpose room. This space will serve as a homework room; given that they have no electricity in their villages and that night falls at 6 p.m., it is impossible for them to study after school. This space will also serve as an art center and will be open to the entire population of the villages to give courses, conferences, and develop new projects.

Like the 1st project, it includes clean toilets, a workroom for teachers, photovoltaic panels to supply the school with electricity, access to drinking water which will be harvested thanks to the roof of the school. The water will be accessible to the whole population who do not have access to it. The order and on-site delivery phase have already started as you can see on this photo gallery. The building materials, the structure, the roof, and photovoltaic panels will arrive in Sumba around the 15th of September.

Donation already made form Fair Future Foundation to Kawan Baik Indonesia

  1. The first payment of CHF. 15’000.- was carried out on February 28th, 2020;
  2. The second one of Chf.15’000.- was carried out on August 30th, 2020;
  3. The third one of CHF. 6’000.- was carried out on the October 10th. 2020.

The people have absolutely no money to rebuild it. This small school structure was built because these kids live far too far from the nearest primary school, located more than 8 kilometres away on foot. The school before was very simple with split bamboo walls, black sand floors with a tin roof and reeds.

FULL AHEAD!

The plans are completed, the construction of the chassis and the framework are completed. A company from Surabaya is in charge and operates its network of friends to help the foundation. Note that the owner of this civil engineering company is an extraordinary person, invested in the cause that we lead. It is a huge challenge for all of us to coordinate all this from our Base Camp in Denpasar and we no longer count the return trips, the meeting hours, the tens of thousands of WhatsApp messages exchanged via our dedicated group, which we named #RebuildMbinudita (#ReconstruireMbinudita). We have received lots of support form him to rebuild Mbinu Dita.

The first trucks will arrive at the Mbinu Dita site middle of September after a journey of nearly 2,000 kilometres by road and boat. It’s a hell of a trip and the transportation costs for us are significant. We could have done without it, but sadly we couldn’t find what we need to rebuild a school that will stand up to the familiar weather and weather of Sumba Island. It is also always astonishing to think that it is in the poorest regions that materials are the most expensive! Part of the reason is that Sumba is far from it all, I’ll let you go google map here and surely you’ll understand.

Aim | The project, its evolution, the delay (Covid-19)

AIM

Today the foundation can count on a substantial amount, but this does not include the construction of elements to protect the building from the wind, nor the fact of lowering the level of the school by about 1m. These two factors are in our opinion (and that of our volunteer architects) essential in order to protect the new school from very strong wind.

Also as written above, we learned very recently that students who have grown up, a 3rd class/level 3), would be welcome. Otherwise, they will have to walk more than 8km (round trip 16km) to reach the school. So this is an opportunity to include this additional class.

How we will rebuild, the changes made

HOW

The school rebuilding will use the Superior House Instant Panel System (RUSPIN), it’s a prefabricated frame housing technology using a bolt connection system. This technology is suitable to be applied in almost all regions of Indonesia, especially in earthquake-prone areas.

  • Rebuild as explained above;
  • Provide 35 sets of school tables and chairs:
  • Acquire the books and textbooks for the K-13 elementary study programs and the teaching tools based on levels 1 and 2.

When establishing the first estimates in December 2019, the foundation and our architects calculated at the simplest. The time and also the experience made us think a lot, once there with our two architects (2 x 6 days in Sumba). We also exchanged with the children and the local community and redefined the needs relating to the concepts of Security and Access.

Why | Conclusion and security reasons

WHY

We came to the conclusion that for security reasons, we had to do more in terms of construction. The school collapsed once and we don’t want it to happen again. Safety also includes hygiene (water and toilets) but also the impact that a few light bulbs could have on the future of these children, in terms of learning and access to knowledge.

By reconstructing a new school, the Foundation offers the continuity of educational activity in Mbinu Dita. Consequently, these children aged 8 to 10 years old can return to school. This village is located about 2.5 hours by car from the bigger city of Sumba. This population is far from any form of civilization. It is essential for them that the school can be rebuilt as soon as possible!

  • Building a new school also means improving the quality of school facilities, the foundation will improve safety, health and learning behaviours;
  • Offer new possibilities for continuous learning programs, with the new facilities, the new school, and the new tools that will take place there;
  • Develop the enthusiasm of children to learn in joy and safety at school thanks to the new school;
  • Provide access to adequate sanitation facilities, water, and electricity at school.

Thank you very much for your concrete help and your love, to offer to these kids and their teachers a new school.

We work hard on the #RebuildMbinuDita site!

Hello Kawan's,

What is amazing about this #RebuildMbinuDita adventure is how children are involved every day working, to rebuild their future school.

Before, the school that collapsed was a bit like "the center of their world"! Those who live there in one of the most rural areas that can be found, school is simply "everything" for them.

This short sequence shows the daughter of one of the #RebuildMbinuDita teachers. Her name is Mirna, she is 3 years old.

She and her mom are here with us almost every day of the week to help: Cooking for all of us, digging or moving rocks, bring tools, make coffee, bring water for cement talking and laughing all the time too etc... 

It's magic, we have never seen children who build their own school. It is like a game for them, it is also simply the absolute desire to take advantage of this unique place that will be the future school that the foundations (Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia) are offering and building in this very poor region of East-Sumba.

There, far from everything, where water, food and electricity are in short supply, too rare indeed!

Hello form East-Sumba to all of you,

On the October 7, 2020, a few trucks came from Waingapu to deliver the equipment that we ordered from Surabaya (equipment that arrived the day before by container), to continue the construction of the #RebuildMbinuDita school. We joined the truck that was on the way to the project site with our drone, then followed it for a few minutes.

The foundation ordered more than 60 tons of material from Surabaya, which arrives by container after a few days of sea travel. Then an hour's journey by truck from Waingapu, to finally arrive on the #RebuildMbinuDita site. Logistically speaking, it is a very complex affair!

Wish you  all an amazing day Kawan's.
