EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

In Indonesia in general Slum communities occupy area prone to hazards such as : in the edge of time, which is prone to flooding, who lived in the cliffs and living side by side with grave. The land was certainly not clear status. They just barged lives there and allowed by government for many years until time to eviction and they will be evicted without compensation. That's is why my program to remove them from there. To establish a trade school to equip young people, women and children out of school with the skills to enable them to open their own business. Recycling of industrial and agricultural waste to be sold as commodities in order to bring out extra money. We will continue to monitor them after graduate to start a business by connecting with the bank and help to market their products even to export. If possible, they must be relocated, flats are the perfect solutions, but given their purchasing power is very low, we must provide housing at affordable prices. For long term I want to train children five years and older to study music, singing, dancing or sports appropriate areas of their interest and talent, so that they would become professionals in their field. Government assistance generally corrupted so that their situation is difficult to change. And this is happening in many places in Indonesia. It's not a secret because today the prison is populated 60% by government officials and legislators, and there are still many cases of corruption are queued.

WHO BENEFITS?

At first only young people, women and children out of school who receive benefits, but in the end all those who inhabit the slums. In slums generally news spread quickly, when we help some families succeed, other will infected. Will implemented in the city of Manado, Northern Sulawesi, Indonesia which years ago in January 11, 2014 we experienced severely floods and landslides which claimed lives and much treasure, but after the disaster still re-living the same location.

HOW DOES YOUR IDEA TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE CONTEXT OF URBAN SLUMS AND CLIMATE CHANGE?

In a normal situation state slum communities already very apprehensive, especially when disaster due to climate change, can not be imaged in the middle of the night in torrential rain have to evacuate do not know where to go. I intend to strengthen their finances so that they have the ability to change their environment or moved location in order to avoid disaster. They staying there because of financial problems, therefore I fix the root of the problem. They lack the skills to work, so when work they receive very low salaries.
