5 Trees for 1 Person

Government of Indonesia recently launched a new program related to the greening "5 trees for one person". This program is expected to foster public awareness of the importance of maintaining the balance of the earth with a lot of planting trees and maintaining them.


In the next year we will assist the government program (5 trees for 1 person) to socialize to people and plant the trees as much as possible in order to greening Indonesia.

For that in implementing the above, we would need a huge budget, so we still expect attention and assistance from donors to continue to help us through this reforestation program.

In 2010, we have received a budget of $ 3.243 from the donors, the budget has been used to implement reforestation programs in Indonesia, be it counseling on the importance of planting trees and maintaining them.

We thank you very much for all your attention and your help in 2011, we look forward to the donors in 2012 to continue to assist us in implementing a forestation programs in Indonesia in particular.

We congratulate Happy New Year 2012, hopefully in 2012 you always have good luck and success

Our Salute

Dear the Donors

We have obtained a quote for plant this pentadesma butyracea trees because these trees for reforestation and also the fruit can be beneficial for oil production.

The vegetable fat extracted from the seed is in good demand from the global food and confectionery industries, if it is produced in a sustainable manner. Pentadesma fat is extracted with simple technology, is a very good cooking fat, a vegetable fat spread can be produced and can be converted to biodiesel even on a small scale.

Prof. V.K.S. Shukla (www.ifsc.dk) and Hemal De Silva have carried out extensive research on the species

Our team in Aceh has provided 250 acres of land for planting this tree. but the obstacles we face is the cost to cultivate this land is very expensive, so expect help from the donors to realize our ideals.

On October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds on Oct 19.  Once these matching funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied.  In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors!

We look forward to the donors to participate in this program so that our program can continue to maintain the balance of our natural.

Thanks to the world

Thanks to the world

Natural disasters that hit Indonesia since 2010 and 2011 are so numerous, among others;
Eruption of Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta, Flash Flood in Papua, Jakarta floods, volcanic eruption Soputan, eruption of Mount Marapi in Padang West Sumatra, and others.

This program assistance is to help displaced victims of natural disasters in Indonesia
This program assistance has been delivering food, beverages, clothing, blankets, milk for infants and another assistance to help the displaced victims of the eruption of Mount Merapi in Yogyakarta and Central Java.

Budget constraints in the program means that not all locations of natural disasters in Indonesia can be reached to help the displaced victims of natural disasters in several regions in Indonesia. Efforts that we do have leverage in order to help natural disasters victims in Indonesia.

But that effort would not work without budget support and assistance from donors.
Therefore we say a big thanks to GlobalGiving and donors for all your kind help and attention to this program, so this program can be implemented.

We hope to met again in other programmes.  Our commitment is to assist with sincerity the natural disasters victims in Indonesia.

May the Lord repay you all

Our Salute "PUSPEM Foundation team"
