The health crisis we are all experiencing has changed the lives of children and workers, with health systems closed, borders closed, schools and businesses closed. Today, we are facing an economic crisis that affects all countries.
As this crisis has spread, so too has misinformation, which fuels discrimination and stigma. Fair Future Switzerland / Indonesia and Kawan Baik Indonesia are very active in promoting the facts rather than fear, providing reliable advice to those concerned. We are on the ground in partnership with front-line workers and provide them with the information and resources they need to keep people healthy and learn, free from disease and violence.
In early 2006, Alex Wettstein founded the Fair Future Foundation, a Swiss State Approved, recognised of Pure Public Utility & Tax exempted. Alex is a Swiss citizen and he has been working in the medical field for NGOs for many years all over South-East Asia & Switzerland.
The foundation is exclusively dedicated to providing people and children with concrete solutions to improve social, educational and medical living conditions.
Since 2010 in accordance with our code of ethics, the foundation has offered the means and developed a significant number of actions (more than 350 on the 31.12.19 and counting). These programs have already offered solutions to tens of thousands of poor, sick, disabled and disadvantaged people, regardless of race, religion, origin, age, colour.
The foundation and Action for Fair Future want to improve the daily life of local people and communities. Whether they are affected by one or more situations of environmental, social, educational, emotional or medical vulnerability or suffering from a disability.
By creating legal humanitarian organisations in Indonesia or elsewhere, the foundation encourages actions in the service of disadvantaged people.
We have already created 3 legal organisations across Asia: Kawan Baik Indonesia, Fair Future Indonesia and Fair Future Foundation.
These organisations manage and implement social, environmental, medical and educational projects.Action for Fair Future already supports them in setting up operational procedures, in fundraising and we assist them in the implementation of their actions in the field.
Thank you very much to all of you for your kindness and your great support.
The Mission of the foundation
To carry out social, medical, creative, cultural, solidarity, ecological projects and make the world a better place…
To provide for the basic needs of the most disadvantaged children in terms of food, housing, healthcare access and medical follow-up, prevention of illnesses, consequences of accidents, assistance for social and emotional development, in particular towards less favoured groups and individuals. To provide healthy and adequate nutrition, by sharing knowledge and experience in creating a healthy lifestyle for communities.
Help to provide a good education and experience during childhood will positively affect their behavior and way of thinking. Help kids build their future in terms of schooling, learning languages, vocational training useful for their environment and their place of life. Offer them the opportunity to show us their shortcomings and their problems (through their points of view), by implementing simple and fun actions.
Provide information on the importance of sanitation and hygiene, as well as a healthy lifestyle for women, especially during menstruation. Reproductive health for teenage girls, victims of sexual abuse. Learning the reproductive system in young girls, victims of forced marriages when they are underage, often under 15 years old. Prevention of pregnancies in young girls, and support if they are pregnant.
Work in so-called “emergency” actions such as: Care for children in danger, abandoned children, street children, and victims of various forms of trafficking. Provide support to families in priority difficulty after a natural disaster, a shortage of water, food, or who are suffering from a pandemic or epidemic. Provide food and vital products (COVID-19), rebuild destroyed schools or houses.
Develop micro-credit and zero-interest loan solutions, leading to the granting of money loans to entrepreneurs, street vendors, artisans, and people with a small project and goals. A vast majority of these people cannot access conventional bank loans like everyone else. These Micro-Credit solutions make it possible to carry out their projects, thus promoting activity and wealth creation, and income for an entire family, or community.
Provide access to a source of water and, if possible, drinking water, by developing projects for the construction of wells, water reservoirs, and the installation of rainwater recovery systems for example. It is a question of ensuring families a healthier life in order to be able to drink, cook healthy food, wash clothes, and they can wash and shower. But also to fight against malnutrition and infant mortality due to poor water quality.
Without the provision of modern energy and electricity, there is no support for socio-economic development and improving living conditions in rural areas in Indonesia. We develop fair solutions to provide light, a simple lamp in a house, or in a village so that children can study when they return from school. We install solar panels in villages, on playgrounds and we favor the use of renewable energy sources such as wind, water and solar.
Learning to treat minor injuries not to become more serious injuries before being taken to the hospital for professional doctors treatment. When 1st aid kit can be accessed easily, we ensure people are safe. When basic needs for access to basic healthcare are not met, we begin simple actions. One 1st aid kit per school & village! Lack of medical facilities, difficulties of the Indonesian health system, the poverty of families are the main reasons for this finding.
