On the 6th of August 2016, ars86care foundation held a Hand Over Event for two schools in Sumberwungu and Candirejo Kindergarten Gunung Kidul Yogyakarta. Followed by a Volunteering Event attended by Donors who were involved. These two schools are funded by Indvidual Donors and The Nexans Foundation which contributed Green Features of the school. This year marks the second cycle with green feature school in our projects. With the help and contributions from The Nexans Foundation, we were able to move forward with our Green Feature concepts.

 

These features includes, solar energy system, LED lighting, rain water harvesting reservoir (water tank, water reservoir, water pump), surface water absorption (biopori holes), vertical garden, and trash management (indoor and outdoor). The importance of Green Feature concepts lies in the climate change issues that we need to answer. Seeing the level of awareness that people in Gunung Kidul has upon the issue, we feel strongly that these schools can set an excellent example for it’s community and the region.

 

This event was attended by several Head Officers including Head of Tepus District,  Head of Education section of sub district authority,  Head Villages from Sumberwungu and representative of Head of Village  Candirejo and two Principals. The Event started at 14.00 pm after lunch in Sumberwungu Kindergarten, with a performance by the children. The day continues with speeches from ars86care Foundation, and several Head Officers and ends with the traditional Hand Print on one side of the school’s wall. This Event stresses on the value of the project and why Green Features are very important to understand and to be implemented in schools. The dream of ars86care Foundation is to build and create a safe space for children, and this school is one of the result.  In the spirit of raising awareness towards green living, the event follows a series of activities which includes planting endemic plants (Dadap tree : erythina crista-galli), creating vertical garden (consisting of: medicinal plants), and making surface water absorption (biopori holes). By having many participants involved in this event, we hope that the level of awareness towards this project can spread itself up and will result in the community’s sense of belonging towards the schools.
