LA TROBE UNIVERSITY, MELBOURNE and ECOLODGES INDONESIA

Earlier this year, ECOLODGES INDONESIA obtained an opportunity to collaborate with La Trobe University, Melbourne to connect a group of 20 international students with villagers living the Braja Harjosari village, near our Satwa Sumatra Ecolodge using ZOOM. This village is part of a Homestay option given to guests by our travel company Ecosafari Indonesia.

Braja Harjosari is unique being a mixed Moslem and Hindu community, formed by the Transmigration program of the 1960s, living in harmony. Their main income comes from agriculture, and they did have a large wild elephant problem destroying large tracts of their agricultural production. This has been successfully controlled by the development of an Elephant Response Unit.

This program has been beneficial to our outreach to the local community and been a stimulus to our homestay program at all lodges.

Three PowerPoints were presented about Ecolodges Indonesia, the ELI outreach to villages around all our ecolodges, and important facets about the Braja Harjosari village followed by discussions.  The second stage involved groups of selected students interviewing ten homestay families including looking at videos of their homes and facilities. The third stage was the development of a website connecting the village community to the outside world.

The end products we hope, will be a sustainable homestay program giving an extra income stream to the village and an improved homestay program for Ecolodges Indonesia.

LA TROBE UNIVERSITY, MELBOURNE dan ECOLODGES INDONESIA

Awal tahun ini, ECOLODGES INDONESIA mendapat kesempatan bekerjas sama dengan La Trobe University, Melbourne untuk menghubungkan sekelompok 20 mahasiswa internasional dengan penduduk desa yang tinggal di desa Braja Harjosari, dekat Satwa Sumatra Ecolodge kami menggunakan ZOOM. Desa ini merupakan homestay yang direkomendasikan oleh kami melui biro perjalanan wisata kami Ecosafari Indonesia.

Salah satu homestay di Braja Harjosari

Braja Harjosari adalah unik, perpaduan antara komunitas Muslim campuran dan Hindu, yang terbentuk dalam program Transmigrasi tahun 1960-an, dan hidup berdampingan dalam harmoni. Penghasilan utama masyarakat mereka berasal dari pertanian, dan mereka pernah memiliki masalah gajah liar yang menghancurkan sebagian besar produksi pertanian mereka. Tetapi masalah ini telah berhasil dikendalikan melalui program Elephant Respond Unit Taman Nasional Way Kambas.

Desa Braja Harjosari

Program ini bermanfaat bagi penjangkauan kami kepada masyarakat setempat dan menjadi stimulus bagi program homestay di semua lodge kami.

Tiga PowerPoint disajikan tentang Ecolodges Indonesia, hubungan kerjasama ELI dengan masyarakan desa di sekitar semua ecolodges kami, dan aspek penting tentang desa Braja Harjosari yang didalamnya juga terdapat sesi diskusi. Tahap kedua melibatkan kelompok siswa terpilih yang mewawancarai sepuluh keluarga homestay termasuk melihat video homestay dan fasilitas mereka. Tahap ketiga adalah pembangunan website yang menghubungkan masyarakat desa dengan dunia luar.

Produk akhir yang kami harapkan adalah program homestay berkelanjutan yang memberikan aliran pendapatan tambahan ke desa dan program homestay yang lebih baik untuk Ecolodges Indonesia.
