Single Parent Community

Flores Single Parent Community, Indonesia.
The Flores Single Parent Community fights for the value of solidarity and humanity for women.

Being a mother is not an easy thing to do, especially for a single mother. Single mothers are often faced with challenges in their lives. Not only do they have to support the family's financial condition, they also need to make peace with the past which is often emotionally draining. In addition, the social stigma about single mothers still contains negative connotations in Indonesian society, they are often considered weak or powerless, so this is one of the biggest challenges faced by single parents.

Hi Yosef,

How are you? Welcome back!

Are you part of a new project? I don't see a translate button for the linked article. Can you tell us more about it?

Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a great week.

I'm well. Sorry, the website article link is in Indonesian. I formed a new community, namely the Single Parent Community in the Flores area, especially widows who were abandoned by their husbands. We are currently implementing a community social entrepreneurship program with them through the Sustainable Food Home Page (KRPL) activity that they do in their respective homes. The activities that we have done with them are: Preparation of planting media, training on manure management and planting horticultural crops. In the next three months we will plant red ginger on the land that I have prepared for them in an integrated manner of 0.5 hectares. In addition, we will build a pond for tilapia cultivation for them in an integrated manner as well. I'm looking for funds to procure 1 ton of red ginger seeds to be planted in the planting medium and 3000 tilapia seeds in the pond for them to grow. Hopefully someone can help them. Thank you.
