How we work

Our teams conduct independent assessments to determine needs and assess the assistance provided. We regularly question ourselves on the form, relevance and impact of our presence in the field.

A prayer for water around a well in East Sumba

With a few friends from Kawan Baik and Fair Future, we had the privilege and emotion to experience a touching moment, thanks to the strong words of villagers living in a very isolated region of eastern Indonesia. We felt that these brave people had hope that time and the Lord might bring them a better life. For that, we have no choice but to help them.

The procedure for drilling the first well in Mbinudita as part of the Water Connections project. A work of Titan in insane conditions. Three weeks of life on site in the rain, working around the clock to reach a relatively deep water table since clean, clear and healthy water is found at a depth of just over 60m.

Living without toilets and without water, Fair Future is changing that

We are in the process of completing new clean water tanks and new sanitation facilities in Mbinudita. Our teams are on-site with the help of the entire local community, women, men and children who help us in this work. These infrastructures are made of Ferro-cement, like all the others, with the difference that we give the possibility to the villagers to choose the type of construction. Once again, this type of collaboration works wonders on site because it allows everyone to learn and work.

Primary medical care for kids in rural areas

Primary medical care for kids in rural areas

The inhabitants of rural villages do not have access to primary care, and most medical centres are often several hours away on foot. The harshness of life here means we often get hurt, but nothing is available to treat ourselves—no doctor, knowledge, medical equipment and, of course, no antiseptic or medicine. These injuries can lead to the death of a child or an adult if they get worse. We must therefore act quickly. Fair Future, for years, has empowered schools and families in ultra-rural communities to take action in the event of an accident. Today, we are taking another step in this program.

The benefits of Clean Water influence the daily lives of Children and Adults

The benefits of Clean Water influence the daily lives of Children and Adults

The Benefits of Clean Water Influence the Daily Lives of Children and Adults and Impact the Quality of Life in a Community for Generations to Come. Fair Future sees a change in the habits of families who benefit from the Water Connections program. Without drilling deep wells here, families will not be able to access clean water and will have to continue walking for miles and hours to fetch dirty, unsanitary water. Most of the time, women and children are assigned to this exhausting task. Access to better health has always been the foundation’s primary mission, and healing people simply by giving them water is incredible for us. It is the only possible solution.

Drinking and eating better thanks to water connections

Drinking and eating better thanks to water connections

For months, Fair Future has noticed a fundamental change in habits in families who benefit from the “Water Connections” program. Gardens are created. People eat better, drink more, have more energy and are less ill. This observation fills us with joy and comforts us in our choices and decisions. Access to better health has always been the foundation’s primary mission, and healing people just by giving them water is incredible for us.

Strong women representing a strong nation

Strong women representing a strong nation

These women play a major role in the rural economy of their village. They are the ones who transport sand for the construction of a new drinking water reservoir on the Mbinudita site. They sing traditional songs to give themselves courage, because it takes a lot. They are the ones who are in charge of helping us, in what is certainly the most difficult work. Yes, strong women represent a strong nation.

Rumah Kambera, our Medico-Social Base Camp

Rumah Kambera, our Medico-Social Base Camp

Rumah Kambera is the centre of life for all those who work hard in eastern Indonesia. We implement planned programs such as health and medical care for all, the Water Connections programme, access to first aid care for children, and disaster relief planning. Our teams are always ready to receive anyone who would ask for help or support. It is also the centre of thoughts of a whole team that imagines the projects of tomorrow: A borehole here, the construction of infrastructure there. A place where we live, eat, sleep from time to time, and also laugh.

The 2nd sanitary facility of the village is almost finished

The 2nd sanitary facility of the village is almost finished

Although access to clean water continues to be a problem, it isn’t easy to ensure it is safe. In this sense, Fair Future is putting in place measures to ensure that it is sustainable. By tests, of course, filtration systems that use elements present in nature. But also, and above all, the education of users on “how to keep the installation clean and in optimal working order” is part of the “water Connections” program. On the other hand, it should be noted that individual practices also play an essential role in determining the quality of the water that we make available to the villagers here in East Sumba.
