Education

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 is also building a school in a rural area of East Lombok. Two classrooms are already being used, which have been built by using earthbags and ecobricks ensuring a strong earthquake resistant building and a safe learning environment for the children.

Sustainibility

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.ecobrick.org). Thus far over 2000 ecobricks have been made, which makes over 430 kg of plastic waste that has been collected and saved from our nature. These bricks are being used to build a school in East Lombok. The Foundation is also training local craftsmen and women to make upcycled products from waste which are then sold at the Charity Shop. Pituq Restaurants source their ingredients locally and supports the farmers by purchasing from local markets and traders.

The meaning of Pituq

Pituq means number Seven in Sasak - the language of Lombok. Number 7 is widely considered a lucky number, a number that has mystical meaning to it and it is a significant number in all major religions. In numerology, people with number 7 are spiritual and always looking for hidden truths. They are explorers and may have a different way of living where materialistic pleasures do not interest them.
