Today we learned how to do macramé bags with Wilma Dadivas in her office. She is founder of and runs the company “I want to smell the perfume”. They produce bags out of recycled materials such as fishing nets and old clothes.
Wilma´s company makes it possible for Indonesian women to work and providing them better opportunities in life. Before starting with our own macramé bags we had to learn how to do it. Not that easy, but we made it!

Today we visited KDM and Ffrash. Our Norwegian member Mari EB is volunteering at Ffrash. Ffrash produces high-quality, sustainable design furniture and home interior products from trash, giving former street children a chance at a better life.
Their values? 100 percent trash, 100 percent sustainable, 100 percent design and 100 percent not-for-profit.
Ffrash works closely with KDM, a local foundation that offers shelter to former street children. Ffrash believes that every child deserves the right to a sustainable future in a clean environment. With this vision, they created an opportunity for the street children to become skilled workers who can turn trash in beautiful design products.
Ffrash provides the former street children aged 16 to 19 years, 18 months training, but also endows these youth with knowledge and skills to start their own companies.
The Principal of the school informed us about their work, both in the school and the glass workshop.
We thank you, Mari EB for an interesting, fun and rewarding morning. Many new insights and eye openers.
- We also had a yummy cake from Mari… 😉

We had a great hike in Sentul last Tuesday with idGuides and we were also joined by KK the co-founder.
We hiked up and down the rolling Sentul highlands and through the villages and rice paddies.
Parts of the trail were a bit muddy but we had a good laugh sliding around.
We finished the hike at the basecamp and had a locally sourced and produced buffet style lunch. Very healthy and tasty.
Thanks to our guides and KK! See you soon!

Cooking class with Ibu Molina! We will learn how to make Chicken Rendang, Urap and Corn fritters Bali style. Our teacher is Ibu Molina, a woman who originally comes from the north part of India, but has been living in Jakarta for 30 years. She teaches cooking classes and also has her own delivery food company (Indian dishes) in her house.
We all did a few things, but were mostly looking and listening.
The smell of good food is tempting us and we all start getting hungry!
And finally the dishes are served and the taste was fantastic! Yummy!

Today some of us joined an event that makes your guts feel good…! We learned what Kombucha is and why it´s good for us.
“Kombucha is produced by fermenting tea using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) commonly called a mother or mushroom. The living bacteria are said to be probiotic, one of the reasons for the drink´s popularity”. From Wikipedia.org.
After this we had a lovely lunch served by Katta. Vegetables, turmeric rice, tofu, chicken, homebaked bread and fruits. All organic! Sorry for almost no pictures this time…!
Let´s try a different way of Coffee Morning! We met up at “Komunal 88” in Kemang and had a nice chat with coffee and breakfast.
