Monthly allowences and 1-time donations

Mr. Imam is de coordinator and inventor of the social project at Kampong Klojen, MalangMr. Imam is the brain behind all social support projects in kampong Klojen. He knows this kampong inside out as he was born in kampong Klojen in 1970. He now lives about 7 km from the kampong, but still runs his 'shop' in kampong Klojen.
Imam is a locksmith and learned most that he knows about locks from his father. You can find his 'shop' - which is a famous "kaki-lima" - at one of the entrances into kampong Klojen, just opposite the market Klojen.


Why Imam started his project

"If I wait till I am rich before I think about helping others, I don't know when that will be... Better to help with IDR 5,000 only than not at all. When I first started to ask friends whether they were willing to donate, I was a bit reluctant. But, I got happily surprised. It seemed that everybody was more than willing." That is how Imam started.
Imam started his work as a volunteer in November 2016. Smartine Indonesia Travel supports him both with donations and administrative issues, when necessary.


Details of the monthly allowencess and the 1-time donations

At the moment Imam and Smartine support 12 households in kampong Klojen and 9 households in kampong Suroparti. The project started in kampong Klojen at the end of 2016. In April 2018 kampong Suropati was added to the program. Both kampongs are a stone's throw from our office.
We started with about IDR 50,000 per household per month, both slowly we were able to donate IDR 100,000 per household per month. One should understand that Indonesia's social security system is certainly developing and for several reasons not yet reachabale for all those in need.
Our monthly allowences aren't that big of a number. We prefer not to have the receiver depending on our donations, but him being able to have some extra in addition to his plain plate with rice.
Herewith the details.

 

Due to Covid-19 we had to stop our monthly allowences as we have no income at all.
At 23 April 2020 we set up a donation campaign to buy those in need some basic needs, including rice, fish, eggs, milk, noodles, coffee and soy sauce (to make the rice edibale even without vegetables and other side dishes). We delivered 5 times a box with food.

 

The table is WORK IN PROGRESS and not yet complete. We just recently changed our presentation as we don't have the man-power to keep it up to date per person as we used to do.
