Background

The primary school of Mbinu Dita, is located in the hamlet of Mbinu Dita, which is in Sumba East. Waingapu the most important city of Sumba is more than 2 hours by car, of which more than an hour on a partially paved road and in very bad condition.

This region where Mbinu Dita is located, has become an independent village and which is now an integral part of the village of Prai Paha, sub-district of Ngaha Ori Angu.

Mbinu Dita Parallel School is affiliated with its mother school Waitama One-Stop School. When we visited him last November, the school had two classrooms (level 1 and 2, for children 8 to 10 years old), perched on top of a hill, without water and without electricity.

This parallel school was built because the children of the small classes live far too far to reach the main school, which is more than 8 km away on foot. Thanks to Mbinu Dita, children have to walk less, but for some, more than 3-4 km. This classroom building had been constructed independently, by the parents of the students, with the help of the surrounding community.

All had worked “hand in hand” to build this school, so that their children could acquire knowledge closer to home. The school was very simple with split bamboo walls, black sand floor with a tin roof and reeds. Despite this, the children looked comfortable. The school had enough teaching and learning materials, and offered a variety of creative learning outcomes for their students.

The rain and the storm are united to destroy our school and now there is nothing left for the children!

The school we are looking after in Mbinu Dita (Sumba East) was completely destroyed by a storm on December 18, 2019. The Foundation, therefore, undertook to rebuild it before the end of March 2020. More than 50 children from this very remote area, have no more school and we all cry, simply because it is a real drama for this whole rural community, which lives without direct access to water and without electricity.

We took this school under our wing in November 2019, touched by the poverty and the kindness of this extraordinary population. Fortunately, there were no students, our teachers in class, because the children had finished their exams and received their school reports. They were therefore not in school when this disaster occurred.

What will happen to children when they start school next semester? What can we do to help rebuild this school for the children of Mbinu Dita so that they can learn comfortably and safely in the future?

We continue to coordinate with the teachers, the Charis Sumba school which helped the young teachers and the Mbinu Dita community. With this, we invite everyone to participate with us in the reconstruction of the school. The project in its development and fundraising phase is already well advanced and we should be able to start work in February 2020.

Together We Can

Help Them

  • The schools are made of a steel frame, about 60 tons. The whole was built in Surabaya, more than 2,000 kilometers from MbinuNdita, then transported by boat, trucks;
  • The foundations are more than 1.50m deep. The structure is flexible and resistant to earthquakes. The walls are made up of more than 10,000 white bricks;
  • The materials for the floors are local flat stones, we use as much as possible natural and ecological materials from the local community;
  • The roof is made of local wood, then sealed with two layers of asphalt. This in order to collect rainwater and dew. This water is stored in two 5,000-liter tanks to serve the local community;
  • Electricity is supplied by photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the school;

# bangunmbinudita

Semua hal baik berawal dari rumah, termasuk proyek #WaterConnection #Mbinudita yang menjadi latar #CeritaAir. Dari kemudahan akses air bersih yang kami dapatkan di tempat kami tinggal, kami ingin membaginya dengan masyarakat #Sumba. Karena, sudah selayaknya #kawanbaik berbagi, bukan?

Selama sebulan ke depan, kami akan meminjam mata dan telinga tim kami yang merupakan keluarga kecil dengan seorang batita sehat dan lucu. Kawan Gogon dan Kawan Annisa akan bekerja bersama dengan tim Kawan Baik di Sumba, masyarakat dan mitra lokal, menceritakan pengalaman pembangunan akses air bersih dan sanitasi sehat di wilayah yang terkenal dengan sabana dan kuda. Dua Kawan ini bergerak dalam tim, juga sebagai satu unit keluarga yang terbiasa dengan berbagai kemudahan akses kebutuhan dasar pemukiman kota.

Semua orang bisa membantu, melakukan sesuatu untuk bersama-sama membangun kemudahan yang menjadi hak kita semua.

mengamankan pampam dan nyamnyam persiapan #simentuljourney ke Sumba untuk nemenin mama papa ketemu dengan kawan-kawan disana dalam rangka menghadirkan air bersih dan sanitasi sehat untuk masa depan yang lebih baik di project #waterconnection #bangunmbinudita oleh kawanbaikindonesia dan fairfuturefoundation
PROGRESS MBINUDITA #WATERCONNECTION oleh KAWAN BAIK
Setelah berhasil menghadirkan air bersih dan sanitasi sehat di Mauliru dan Rumah Kambera, Sumba Timur, NTT, selanjutnya adalah Mbinudita. Proses yang telah berjalan dalam rangkaian proyek Water Connection untuk mendekatkan akses terhadap air bersih adalah pengeboran sumur dengan kedalaman kurang lebih 45 meter. Setelahnya adalah menghadirkan air dari sumur bor ke tandon sejauh 205 meter dengan ketinggian sekitar 60 meter. Untuk ini dibutuhkan instalasi listrik, pipa, dan sumber daya yang mampu menyediakan cukup listrik. Untuk mengisi 12.000 liter air di tendon pompa listrik berkekuatan 1,5 HP (Horse Power) harus bekerja 5-6 jam. Air yang tertampung kemudian dialirkan ke RT 3 dan RT 4. Dalam seluruh proses, akan terjadi transfer pengetahuan tentang membuat tandon menggunakan metode ferosemen dilengkapi dengan instalasi pemanen air hujan dan pemanfaatannya.

Rangkaian kegiatan ini akan mulai dikerjakan pada bulan Februari. Terima kasih kepada donatur yang telah membantu melalui @fairfuturefoundation dan #KawanBaikIndonesia. Dari donasi tersebut, kita akan membantu 2.000 warga #Mbinudita untuk mendapatkan akses air bersih dan sanitasi sehat, juga akses terhadap pengetahuan.
 
Berikutnya, kami memesan online beberapa material yang sulit didapat untuk dikirim ke #Sumba lewat jalur laut. Di antaranya adalah pipa HDPE, kabel, genset 5000 Watt, dan beberapa perlengkapan kelistrikan, termasuk alat-alat pendukung seperti pendeteksi air bawah tanah.

Saat ini, dana yang telah terkumpul 42% dari target donasi, sebesar kurang lebih Rp.400 juta, dan kami akan tetap membuka donasi hingga mencapai 100% sementara kegiatan di lapangan terus berjalan. Terus dukung kami untuk menyelesaikan proyek #waterconnection demi akses air bersih dan sanitasi sehat bagi masa depan yang lebih baik.
