BIODIVERSITY NATURE RESORT KEY PROJECTS

Our philosophy as a resort is to continuously uplift the communities economically and socially. These two factors play an important role and cannot work without the other, is done on the basis of mutually beneficial cooperation, to build solidarity. To us the key to success and cooperation between the Resort and the village is to help the future generation of Papuan Children. As it is known, our current generation lays the foundations for future generations.

We are most proud of the following projects, divided in three key areas that demonstrate the successful implementation of our policies:

Health Programmes

Coastal villages, as we have here in Raja Ampat, are often faced with difficulties travel to Waisai for basic health checkups. We bring the doctors to the village.

Business Initiatives

Highlight the importance of measuring and integrating the economic value of the local region into sustainalbe tourism.

Educational Programmes

West Papua province is one of the lowest literacy and university graduates. We want to focus to reduce this. Based on our desire to Improve the welfare of the people around us by increasing their knowledge and education which is the main goal.

Business Initiatives for the Local Community

We try to buy local products (that have sufficient quality) from the local community and support local entrepreneurs in the sale of their products, that are based on the area’s nature, history and culture.

The 3rd Health Program on 02 February 2020 in the villages of Friwen, in collaboration with the Public Health Department in Raja Ampat. Friweners, children and adults, were checked-up, carefully examined, and prescribed medicines when necessary. All medicine and nutrition packages were donated by Biodiversity.

The Program focused on providing essential health services to all children and adults of the village, such as Flu; checking uric acid levels, cholesterol, blood sugar; controlling blood pressure, possible skin infections, ulcers, among other basic health parameters.

Secondly, though not less fundamental, personal hygiene was highlighted. The doctors insisted on its cruciality and gave several tips to maintain personal health, from the importance of washing hands, brushing teeth and bathing regularly, as well as how determining a good nutritional education can be.

 

Healthy Nutrition Iniciative

In 2018 it was determined that a trend was emerging in the local village of vitamin deficiencies. In response to this we started to sponsor food deliveries to the village, supplying mothers with the necessary essentials to ensure their children are getting the types of foods they need to grow into healthy adults.

Now, in 2020 we make this once a month: We have organised a nutricional meal-activity for all the village kids (and adults welcomed too). We prepared and delivered a delicious «Bubur Kacang hijau» : green beans and lentils with coconut milk and brown sugar. This is a traditional Indonesian recipe, and recommended by the local health department to compliment the deficiencies of the local diet.
