Since Connect Indonesia, The charity was launched in 2000, we have done several small community projects, ranging from environmental, tourism, self-sufficiency and small-scale home industry projects.
We are currently managing a small on-going project called “Seeing is Believing”, where we are campaigning to collect reading glasses and distribute them to senior workers all around Indonesia, particularly to those who are working in the weaving industry. Since the birth of the project in 2012, we have managed to distribute thousands of reading glasses to senior workers around the archipelago. In the past 3 years, we have been work collaboratively with several local charities in Indonesia, where they have been connecting us to the weavers and helping us with glasses distributions.
Our projects are 100% grassroots projects, runs and managed by unpaid volunteers and in most cases, we work directly with the beneficiaries.
