Dear friends, Dear families,
I have the great pleasure to write to you to explain in a few lines, the deadlines of the foundation in the coming months to ensure its future as well as consolidate its past actions, ongoing and those of tomorrow.
I had spoken about it during the general assembly of the Fair Future Foundation in Switzerland last June, and this point also appears in the minutes of our meeting. So, here I am again after a lot of studies, surveys and contacts with the Swiss embassy and the Indonesian authorities.
As you know, for almost ten years now, the Fair Future Foundation (FFF) has worked with other local foundations to make its social and health actions possible on the field, but also and above all to make them proper regards Indonesian laws.
For the last ten years, the FFF has never been able to work on actions in its own name. Therefore we collaborate with one or more local organisations with success, but the resources available are limited as I will explain later.
To work and offer our services -thanks to you all-, the FFF has helped to create a local Foundation: The Bali Sari Foundation - Yayasan Bali Sari in 2011.
The fact is that it is too often difficult to plan for the future, to plan a good future for the Swiss Foundation. And as I would also say below, the FFF has grown!
From now on, things must change, and we have this little project that we submit to you.
We must receive more donations to fund our ongoing projects and those of tomorrow. Because in the state, it's very difficult, or not possible anymore! Having the chance to get more donations, yes, but also funding, equipment and specialists! Collaborate with the states, receive support from governments because that of Indonesia offers us nothing less than nothing. It is a developing state, poor in everything in terms of techniques, humanities, social and has no know-how in terms of sustainable development.
This project is for the sole purpose of giving the FFF time to live a long life! Therefore, we must react and adapt to the economic demands of our time,
React with suitable solutions, and that will open new horizons media, scientific, cultural among others. The FFF must, therefore, equip itself with tools corresponding to its new projects if we want to succeed them. And survive!
Because we have grown because we have reached maturity. Today, we have other ideas that meet different needs.
These new ideas are all future actions of substantial magnitude that will undoubtedly require other techniques of implementation, separate pieces of knowledge. Above all, to be able to benefit from resources that are not available here.
One or more local foundations are not enough anymore. Our needs and those of our beneficiaries are too important now. And we do not have enough funds, not enough funding and no or very little support from states, large state NGOs etc.
The fact of having a "Swiss representation" in the Indonesian territory will allow us shortly to collaborate on behalf of the FFF with other partners, but also and above all, to set up our solutions, attracting new resources, customers and or techniques.
The additional benefits are also much better management of financial resources and controlling requested by the Swiss authorities.
Moreover, to be able to have more international help too, as the big foreign agencies collaborate more willingly with an official organisation from Switzerland or another country, in which the management and management controls are carried out much more rigorously. And as I said, we must succeed in having more funding.
Another major advantage is to benefit from the expertise, knowledge of a country where the technical, medical and scientific are represented in force. Thanks in part to research, universities, institutes in sustainable development etc.
Switzerland is one of those countries where these new horizons can become new areas of activity, thanks to these possibilities; the FFF is firmly convinced.
At first, we commissioned a Notary and Jurist, specialists in International Law in Jakarta, to make a first feasibility study. We are therefore moving forward in these preliminary studies and have already been able to work on a specific timetable.
It is obviously not an easy thing to achieve because functional disparities are real between our two countries. But the outstanding points will be, without doubt, accomplished to achieve this goal: The Fair Future Foundation Indonesia.
In summary, the management will be done on-site, by the people of the Indonesian Foundation and a link will be created with the Swiss Foundation.
We thank you for your interest, kindness and trust.
Very sincerely yours - Fair Future Foundation Switzerland - Alex Wettstein - Indonesia, the 22.08.2019
