Let’s help generations of children have a school to learn

On December 19, 2019, Mbinu Dita two-class school collapsed due to a storm. By rebuilding a new school, the Foundation ensures the continuity of educational activity in Mbinu Dita. Hundreds of children aged 8 to 10 will benefit from this beautiful school, it will transmit knowledge and knowledge to thousands of children. The population of Mbinu Dita is far from any form of civilization. It is therefore essential for them that the school can be rebuilt and functional. And for the very rural community of this region, this new school will also be a community center in which the foundation will organize social, medical, artistic and cultural events throughout the year. After more than 6 months of work, the school is now completely built. It was the Foundation greatest adventure, as the area is difficult to access and local resources are almost non-existent. Now, we must therefore equip it correctly so that the teachers and the more than one hundred children of MbinuDita can study in the best possible conditions. In this, you can still help us a little bit.

The ULTIMATE project in terms of commitment and logistics
  • This is the most ultimate mission for all of us that we have ever been given. We’re saying this not because it is difficult, but because it is necessary!
  • Necessary for the hundreds of families and all the kids out there. Education is a right, the most important along with the right to have access to a healthy life.
  • Yes, ultimate because we are far from everything; Building a school of this type, there, in the middle of the hills and without any logistical resources, is crazy!
  • The most unlikely challenges, for so-called “lost” causes, are those for which most of the time no one is doing anything;
How we build a brand new school for generations of kids?
  • The schools are made of a steel frame, about 60 tons. The whole was built in Surabaya, more than 2,000 kilometers from MbinuNdita, then transported by boat, trucks;
  • The foundations are more than 1.50m deep. The structure is flexible and resistant to earthquakes. The walls are made up of more than 10,000 white bricks;
  • The materials for the floors are local flat stones, we use as much as possible natural and ecological materials from the local community;
  • The roof is made of local wood, then sealed with two layers of asphalt. This in order to collect rainwater and dew. This water is stored in two 5,000-liter tanks to serve the local community;
  • Electricity is supplied by photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the school;
What else are we doing for this community?
  • Provide 35 sets of school tables and chairs in collaboration with the Sumba community;
  • Acquire the books and textbooks for the K-13 elementary study programs and the teaching tools based on levels 1 and 2;
  • By reconstructing a new school, the Foundation offers the continuity of educational activity in MbinuDita. 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;
  • Provide access to adequate sanitation facilities, water, and electricity at school;
Action plan, timetable and deadlines
  • The following program timeline schedule for Mbinu Dita
  • Survey: January & February 2020
  • Designing & budgeting: February 2020
  • Material preparation: March 2020
  • COVID-19 operation and action by the Fair Future Foundation

A movie about MbinuDita

Where is MbinuDita school?

Mbinundita - Where we are rebuilding the new School for 65 kids.

Our new school in MbinuDita is now complete. It operates and welcomes nearly 60 students aged 8 to 11 every day. The foundation will begin activities related to the creation of a huge “permaculture” -type garden so that the nearly 200 families on-site can eat more and above all, healthier.

But also the acquisition of school furniture (following the withdrawal of the group of local people who had committed to it), the painting of the walls to make them look pretty and allow the children to make frescoes, the change of solar panels (too cheap, which did not resist the climate) and finally to the creation of a water point for the nearly 200 families who live there and who have no direct access to a water source.

Rumah Kambera, the Foundation Base Camp in East Sumba

The foundation house in East Sumba … We started its renovation in mid-December 2020 and we will start working on it during the month of January.

Today, the Swiss foundation faces significant challenges in terms of engagement in the field:

  • Providing medical care, drinking water, light to study, build schools and improve solutions for access to knowledge, and primary care.
  • We are creating Rumah Kambera in this direction: To improve the living conditions of hundreds of thousands of families and children, living in rural areas of eastern Indonesia.

the This Rebuilding is made for generations of children in East Sumba

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 centre 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 centre 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.

  6. … And more will be done for the continuation of this project;-)

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.

The site of Mbinu Dita on Google Map here if you want to look where it’s located.

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.

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

East Sumba, in the middle of the most beautiful place in the world, bit also the most inaccessible to build such a big building. We did it!
