And That’s A Wrap!

We have spent the last few weeks or so processing oodles of photos, writing reports, working on a video and talking to the media. Here’s a great first review thanks to Wartapala Indonesia and we also made the National newspaper, Kompas!

Throughout this whole process we have been amazed with the openness, creativity and enthusiasm with which people have embraced the project. It has grown organically and at times surprisingly, completely taking on a life of its own. It has now become something that belongs to everybody.

The final statistics:

  • We presented six performances
  • We worked with over twenty professional local artists
  •  We worked with 300 children, across seven different organisations
  • New friendships, partnerships and collaborations were forged

We also have a very shiny new video so you can relive the whole journey! This video is now on Steemit, which means Yayasan Permakultur Kalimantan receive donations for every like you give! Head over to Steemit and click like to support them.

Finally we want to extend a very big hearted thank you to everyone who has been involved in what became the epic Penjelajahan Orangutan. We had the help of artists, children, volunteers, managers, friends and family from across the globe. This is not an exhaustive list, but a work in progress. Please get in touch if you would like to be included on the site!
