The children need your help!
As the foundation lost its source of steady funding with the pandemic, Pituq Community school attended by about 80 students is struggling to keep the doors open as funds
to pay the salaries of the teachers and to purchase much needed study supplies are running low.
Please support the education
of the children here.
Roxanne Taylor Media visited the Pituq Community Foundation and documented our work in the region following the earthquakes in 2018.
Pituq Collection is a brand created by Pituq Community Foundation to further support the Lombok communities.
The products are designed closely together with the talented craftsmen and women in Lombok to create sustainably made and recycled items. The producers can focus on developing their craft while having a source of income, while we work hard to find ways to promote and sell their products. All proceeds go towards the many charity projects of Pituq Community Foundation to support locals even further.
The Foundation has supported dozens of schools and orphanages around Lombok, providing them with school materials and tools for studying. The volunteers have also provided emotional support for children affected by the earthquakes. Pituq Community Foundation has built a pre-school in a rural area of East Lombok. Two classrooms and bathroom facilities have been built by using earthbags and ecobricks ensuring a strong earthquake resistant building and a safe learning environment for the children.
Sustainability is a core value of Pituq Community Foundation and Pituq Co. as a company. The foundation has initiated several projects to educate and raise awareness to the problems that plastic waste causes by training local communities and schools to make ecobricks (www.ecobricks.org). Thus far over 10,000 ecobricks have been made, which is over 2,000 kg of plastic waste that has been collected and saved from our nature. These bricks have been used to build a school in East Lombok. The Foundation is also training local craftsmen and women to make upcycled products from waste.
