Our clinic has many patients who don't know how to enroll for the national health insurance plan, don't understand changing health and nutrition needs with age and don't have basic financial literacy about saving and borrowing money. Especially during the pandemic, we saw how health and financial illiteracy caused tremendous stress and disadvantage in their lives. We will run a series of workshops educating women on health and finance issues and hopefully make these ongoing.
Our clinic has many local patients with limited knowledge about healthy living and aging, who don't have basic financial literacy about saving, health insurance and borrowing. This health and financial illiteracy causes tremendous stress and disadvantage. Families often borrow money at high interest rates, don't have crisis savings or don't know about available resources. Many aren't informed about healthy aging, mental health issues or dealing with diabetes: all growing problems in Indonesia.
We will run a series of 6 workshops with professional trainers and Bumi staff educating 100 local women on health and finance issues. The issues addressed will include financial literacy, good saving habits, how to enroll for national health insurance, mental health, physical age changes, diabetes and more. We will pay women a stipend to attend both to encourage attendance and to cover their time and transportation costs.
The project will raise financial and health literacy of 100 women in the village, ensure all are enrolled in the national health insurance scheme and have a savings plan. We'll ensure they're aware of resources or lifestyle changes which can help with mental health issues, diabetes and aging. We want them to feel safe and trusting to approach relevant staff if they have any questions or problems about these issues in the future.
