Pundi Hijau

Pundi Hijau or the Green Trust Fund is a resource-raising space (grants, knowledge, networks, volunteers) for civil society organizations (CSOs) that work on providing assistance to victims of natural disasters and developing local level food resilience in communities affected by  such disasters.

This strand of the Pundi program has included collecting donations for disaster management from the public in collaboration with alumni from Santa Ursula School and with the support of a number of individuals. Pundi Hijau has also supported work on developing food resources with Tanoker, Al Tariq Islamic boarding school and Karawang Organic Farming School. Other projects  have included the reintroduction of organic farming techniques, creating development plots for the pupils of Kanisius primary school and also providing support for the prevention of sand mining on the slopes of Merapi volcano in collaboration with Palguna in Central Java.

Pundi Hijau works to develop the empowering communities as the supporting ecosystem of the Pundi Hijau that comprised of the Advisory Team, the Fundraising Team, the Beneficiaries Team, the Meaning Team, and IKa as the management.  

Pundi Hijau has raised funds for victims of natural disasters directly from the public via concerned communities such as university students.

Why do we support Pundi Hijau?

  • To address unbridled development that has no regard for the planet, climate change and unsustainable population growth resulting in severe environmental degradation.
  • In response to ongoing cases of human rights violations by resource-intensive industries such as palm oil plantations, cement factories, mining and water companies that privilege shareholder and stakeholder interests over the people’s right to food, a safe and healthy environment and environmental sustainability.
  • Indonesia is located within the “ring of fire”, making Indonesia more vulnerable to natural disasters.
  • In just one year (2019),, The National Agency for Disaster Countermeasure recorded a total of 3,721 natural disasters.
  • An increase in the number of casualties, to 477 deaths, 109 missing, 3,415 injured, and impacting on  the lives of 6.1 million people.
  • Damage and destruction of 72,992 homes, 2,011 public facilities including medical services, education facilities and houses of worship.
  • The nature of assistance schemes that tend to prioritise direct assistance over community sustainability and resilience.

From 2014-2020, Pundi Hijau has supported:
