This exhibit is a glimpse of life in the east, of life in rural areas of Sumba Timur. A representation of families' daily lives in remote regions, captured through young students' eyes, aged 9 to 12.

They open their houses to us, share their regular meals with us, invite us to follow them on the way to school, see their island and hills from morning until night. They capture those moments that punctuate their lives and explain them to us. Creating a story from these images is also an essential part of this exhibition and the curation process. Not only do they open their doors, but they also want to explain and tell us stories to guide the visual, in their own words. It's now up to us to listen.

From the remote region of Kahaungu Eti sub-district, in the eastern part of East Sumba district, Nusa Tanggara Timur, their villages are named Kamanggih and Matawai Katingga. Forty-eight children are the authors and artists of this exhibition called "Kabar Dari Timur" which translates to "News from the East". Through these photographs, audiences in Indonesia and worldwide can imagine and immerse themselves in a child's daily life in these regions.

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, cancellation of socio-cultural events and halt of learning and teaching activities in Indonesia, the exhibition had to be adjusted. Hence, it was adapted online, making accessible to a larger audience through smartphones, tablets or computers.
It is hoped that this medium will make it possible to re-transpose the message of this series of photographs and stories as near as possible to reality.

Sumba Photo Stories is a program initiated by Kawan Baik Indonesia and Fair Future Foundations. Collect factual information from the actors' subjective perspective, in this case, the 48 students, using the medium of photography and creating stories from it.

In their environment and through this social, cultural and educational program, the actors offer real perspectives of their life's quality, based on their authentic insight. The "Kabar dari Timur" exhibition has children as protagonists. Still, this program adapts to diverse target populations: women as its leads, a particular field of work or any other community or theme.

These programs' main objectives are learning new skills, such as photography and storytelling, writing improvement for both children and adults, and boost confidence whether to speak or to present the work done to an audience.

The resulting work, the photographies, are work of art in their own. They are also a factual basis analyzed for research work in the socio-cultural, educational or health fields.

This exhibition will be held until March 2020, via the website sumbaphotostories.com

Let's identify the problems and find good solutions.

We are always trying as Fair Future, with Kawan Baik Indonesia, to bring sustainable solutions to communities living in rural areas, improving their lives with good solutions related to access to basic medical care, health, education, drinking water and renewable energy sources

To do this, we use local resources for the villagers and local skills above all. We do not want to put in place solutions that they do not understand, that will produce waste or even things that are not good for their health and their cultures.

In this sense, the foundation wishes to find ways to use local resources as much as possible, to share our ideas in order to find new possibilities, those that will innovate the most, and may also be able to change the lives of those who will work with us here.

In this sense, we invite you all to collaborate with us here, whether you are from Sumba, or from anywhere else in Indonesia ... And all of you from around the world who would like to bring your know-how, to share solutions aimed at improving the conditions. of life of people here ... Simply learning to collaborate together for a better life.

Y a pas possibilité de trouver une source d'eau près de votre site ? Vous avez une cartographie géologique des sous sol ? A flores dans une zone aride, on avait creuser un puits de 10 m de profondeurs, ensuite on installer une pompe a eau avec un système de filtrage. C'est pas revenu très chèr.

At the end of 2019, strong winds knocked down the parallel classroom building of the Mbinudita school, the building flattened to the ground, books and all classrooms were wet. "Where will you go to school later?", said the children of Mbinudita sadly seeing the collapsed school picking up the rest of the books.

Kawan Baik Indonesia and Fair Future Foundation accompanied by the support of various partners from Archimetriz Bali, KP2S, Charis Sumba Foundation, working hand in hand to rebuild the school building. Parents of students, local residents, teachers, children also participate in the school construction process. Day, night, heat or rain did not dampen the enthusiasm in completing the school building process.

Now the school is here again, more beautiful, more solid than before. The wind and storms will no longer be able to tear it away, destroy it and the children of MbinuDita are safe.

Together, let's build schools, build villages, build the future like we rebuilt Mbinudita.

...Poverty is being hungry. Poverty is being homeless. Poverty is being sick and not being able to see a doctor. Poverty is not being able to go to school and not knowing how to read. Poverty is not having a job, worrying about the future and living from day to day.

Hunger: When a plate of food means two days of income. A simple but nutritious, homemade meal, with homemade ingredients too, provides one-third of a persons daily caloric needs. This meal costsCHF. 1.20 in Switzerland, or 0.5% of average daily income. In the most rural areas where we work, that represents more than two days of income. As if a Swiss had to pay around CHF. 350 for that meal!

One thing is certain: Poverty is a complex social problem. No matter how you define it, you can agree that this is an issue that requires everyones attention. It is important that all members of our society work together so that all have opportunities to realise their full potential. It is beneficial for everyone to help each other.

Help them fill their stomachs by offering us something to buy them something healthy, good too.

Good morning from Mbinudita, East Sumba to everyone,

It's an other bright day here, and we are working to make the school of #RebuildMbinuDita ready as soon as possible for the children's here.

Look at this beautiful school! Today we are waiting out architects, they are on their way from Bali, they will arrive around 5pm today on site here. Click and Dina from #archimetriz will give us some advices and help for the finition. We need to install electricity, rain water collection system and to move the huge orange 5'500 liter thank from it's temporary location the the definitive one.

Then, if raining, people from here will have some water. About the water, here, people are really struggling. No rain season, no water or very very few. Not enough to ensure an healthy life. This is actually the main topic when we talk with them: Water!

If anyone Is ready to help us, you're more than welcome. It's a survival question for the inhabitants of rurals areas of East Sumba. Water for life yes. Bit no water=No life.

Thank you for your time, your benevolence and interest.

Hello, Kawan's,

The dream became true for hundreds of little kids ages from 8 to 10! Their new School is almost rebuilt, after almost 3 months of full work on-site, there in East Sumba.

Look at how it's great and beautiful! An extraordinary human adventure, to be honest with you.

It was necessary to find the physical, moral, psychic resources also to go to the end of this marvellous realization in favour of the children and of all the community of this region masterfully poor.

Sumba is not easy, the needs are huge in terms of everything and we are here doing things simply but doing them ourselves thanks to all of you, having joy, happiness and passion. Because we know you with us all 24 hours a day here at #MbinuDita.

This project is not yet finished as there is still lots of needs you know, then you can help us here if you want to support the Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia to install more solar panels for example, to plants some three's, to buy school furniture for the kids there or starting a beautiful garden to help people there to have a bit more food.

Thank you very much and see you soon.

Hello Kawan's,

What is amazing about this #RebuildMbinuDita adventure is how children are involved every day working, to rebuild their future school.

Before, the school that collapsed was a bit like "the center of their world" you know! Those who live there in one of the most rural areas that can be found, school is simply "everything" for them! Really!

This short sequence shows the daughter of one of the #RebuildMbinuDita teachers. Her name is Mirna, she is 3 years old!

She and her mom are here with us almost every day of the week to help: Cooking for all of us, digging or moving rocks, bring tools, make coffee, bring water for cement talking and laughing all the time too etc... All these kids are incredible!

It's magic you know, I have never seen children who build their own school. It is like a game for them, it is also simply the absolute desire to take advantage of this unique place that will be the future school that the foundations (Fair Future Foundation and Kawan Baik Indonesia) are offering and building in this very poor region of East-Sumba.

There, far from everything, where water, food and electricity are in short supply, too rare indeed!

Hello form East-Sumba to all of you Kawan's,

Yesterday October 7, 2020, trucks came from Waingapu to deliver the equipment that we ordered from Surabaya (equipment that arrived the day before by a 100% filled container), in order to continue the construction of the #RebuildMbinuDita school. We joined the truck that was on the way to the project site with our drone, then followed it for a few minutes.

The foundation ordered more than 60 tonnes of material from Surabaya, which arrives by container after a few days of sea travel. Then an hour's journey by truck from Waingapu, to finally arrive on the #RebuildMbinuDita site. Logistically speaking, it is a very complex affair, it is an euphemism to say so!

Wish you all an amazing day Kawan's.

Be a part of #rebuidmbinudita here Kawans: actionforfairfuture.org/new-school/

Good morning from East Sumba, form the #RebuildMbinuDita site,

How are you today? Its a bright morning isn't? We are on our way to the commercial port of Waingapu where we will receive and unload a full container of construction material for the new school of #RebuildMbinuDita.

We have to unload everything by hand because the container cannot go to the site in MbinuDita. Impossible, because there is no road made for it. So, from the container, in three trucks. It's not easy, but we have no choice.

Here are some photos taken yesterday October 5, 2020 from the #RebuildMbinuDita site. The work is progressing well as you can see.

There you go, your encouragement is our hot and sweet chocolate in the morning, so don't hesitate to share, comment. This is also how you can help us directly.

Lots of beautiful things to you all.

Hi wans, hows life today?

We are #RebuildMbinuDita you know?

Picture taken last night on the school rebuilding site in East Sumba. Working late to be ready for beginning of November. Its so important for the community here, and of course for all kids who need to back to school.

A huge project for us, very complicated logistically as we have no water, no electricity here. For electrical power, we use a 2000 Watt generator and for water, we have to order 5000 liters every 3 days. Access road is also not simple, simply as their is no road! Just stone path, dust and the little asphalt that there was practically no longer exists at all.

At night we are working until 10 because its so hot during the day, and the strong wind makes us totally dry. Its a so beautiful project, so useful also for hundreds of kids from Mbinudita. Just wonderful and we are all so glad to help this incredibly brave and good people here 

We plan to finish the #rebuildmbinudita project at the end of October, beginning of November. To achieve this goal, all of us have  to be there everyday. By the way, If youre interested to see the location of #RebuildMbinuDita click here:: https://maps.app.goo.gl/kf2yyG5KQcHpj7Ae6

Three is many way to help this kids and the entire community. We need water to build and to live on site, we need electricity and we need tools. Food for the dozens of locals volunteers how are on site to help us, or to cook for all of us. Energy, healthy food, drink enough, security and delay to terminate the project are our main priorities.  Happiness to rebuild MbinuDita is the cherry on the top!

Thank you so much and see you soon here

Hello Kawan's, how are you today? A bright and hot hello from Sumba from all of us to all of you,

This is Yaspan from #RebuildMbinuDita site here in East-Sumba. Yesterday, as every 3 days, we received 500 liters water for to build the school, but also to cook, to take shower etc...
We all know how water is important right? The foundation needs water, a lot of water because we are a lot to live for several months there, in the middle of the hills very far from everything.

Yaspan and all the families of #Mbinudita suffer greatly from the lack of water. No one here has access to it, or at the cost of several hours of walking, sometimes on foot, sometimes on the backs of buffaloes.

So for him, even 5,000 liters that come out like that from this all-blue pipe, it's like a magic trick!

If you want help people of #RebuildMbinuDita, you can make a donation here: actionforfairfuture.org/new-school/

Thank you so much people for your support. Much love to all of you.
