Hi #GoodPeople!

Let us introduce ourselves. We're Jennifer Sanantha, Chiquita Kusumahadi, and Amanda Eliora. We are currently working as private and freelance employees. Together with the non-profit organization Habitat for Humanity Indonesia, we want to raise funds to help increase the level of sanitation for Bojeng Koneng villagers in Babakan Madang, Bogor, West Java, Indonesia; by building a permanent bathroom facility for them.

We are moved to start a fundraising campaign for them, as during the current pandemic, we realize the importance of maintaining cleanliness starting from the home. Our hearts are especially moved by the Bojong Koneng villagers who do not have sufficient funds to build adequate sanitary infrastructure. 60% of Bojong Koneng villagers live under the poverty line, with an average income of IDR 30,000 - 50,000 (

2 - 3 USD) per day. The lack of sanitation and lack of education on cleanliness is one of the critical issues faced by citizens of Babakan Madang.

Most of the villagers at Bojong Koneng do not have access to a decent bathroom or washroom. Many of them have to make do with a make-shift bathroom using available clothe material, plastic sacks or tarpaulin to construct walls.

The donations we collect will be used to:

Purchase steel, cement, sand, cast stones, a PVC basin, tiles, a door, pipes, a squat toilet, and for roofing construction; the materials will be used to build a washroom and its related sewage disposal channel for the villagers of Bojong Koneng.
