SAUDARI LOMBOK

Empowering the Local Females

DISCOVER

OUR mission

The Saudari Lombok project is one of the first female-run social enterprises in South Lombok

Inspired by the practices of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the Foundation aims to support the local females by incorporating these practices into social enterprises in Lombok. The project works in conjunction with the Bank Sampah project and is essential to the goals of the Foundation. By recycling the waste collected from the beach, this project provides eco-sustainability and a steady economy for Lombok.

WHY ARE YOU HELPING?

NOT ONLY ARE YOU SUPPORTING THE FEMALE POPULATION BUT ALSO THE LOCAL ECONOMY. Waste management and recycling are big issues across Indonesia. This project addresses issues that include:

  • SUPPORTING THE ECONOMY: Recycling and reusing materials in addition to cleaning the beach areas can boost the local economy in many different ways.
  • IMPROVING THE ENVIRONMENT: Reusing materials is a great way of promoting eco-sustainability. It also ensures less wastage on the island.
  • CREATING JOBS: The recycling center combined with the beach cleaning initiative provides the local female population with the opportunity of employment.

HOW YOU ARE HELPING

Supporting this project can benefit the local communities and the island as a whole. Recycling the materials into products is essential in this modern era, especially in locations where recycling facilities are abundant. By implementing a recycling plant and initiative, the communities can start moving towards greener living. This not only helps the aesthetics of the location but it also promotes a healthy lifestyle with long term benefits for the environment. The Saudari Lombok project focuses on the necessities of the local community rather than monetary rewards. By working on the project the female workers are compensated with staple foods, clothing, bill coverage, and financial support where necessary. This is to ensure the continued support for each worker’s family and in an extended way, the community as a whole. This project aims to keep the tranquil location of Lombok clean of pollution and heavily encourage eco-sustainability on the island. As a result of this, the island will remain attractive to tourists, create a nicer living environment for locals, and help to educate about the environmental issues facing many underdeveloped locations.

the recycling process

The Saudari Lombok Recycling Center simplifies methods of recycling and ensures a high-quality output due to the focus of reselling the finished products. The plastic collected from the beach project starts the recycling process off and is put through a shredding process. This shredded plastic then has to be refined in order to progress to the next stage. As the goal of this project is to reuse the materials to make products, the plastic is then heated and placed into molds which include shapes such as pots and furniture. Once this simple process is complete and the plastic has cooled, the outcome is a new product that will be sold.

The Four Stages of the Recycling process

1) Sorting
2) Shredding
3) Moulding
4) Exhibiting
