^^^2009 to 2015 and still counting! ^^^
If our organisation is a human, then age of six years old is still a child, but a child who has learned a lot of new things such as learning how to read, how to make friends, learning how to balance when biking, and a lot more to come.
As an organisation, we are quite similar to the child. We have tried and learned from our activities, we have made friends with many young people, many communities, governmental institutions, the local media, schools, and some donors. And hopefully a lot more to come.
Below is a summary of what Komunitas Penjaga Pulau has accomplished in its six years old:
2009: Climate Goes To School
2010: Environmental Journalism Training
2011: Youth Vulnerability and Capacity Analysis towards Coral Reef Destruction
2012: Youth-Based Coral Reef Conservation Action Plan
2013: (1) Youth-Based Coral Nursery
(2) Marine Eco-Learning Programme for Youth
2014: Building Consensus to Establish Environmental Education Center
2015: (1) Forest Resources Conservation for Youth in Batulanteh Watershed
(2) Strengthening the management of KABETE Education Center
We are thankful to all involved.
