This greatly affects all activities at Rama Sesana Foundation. Responding to this situation, the Rama Sesana Foundation took action by maximizing the use of Social Media, including online Education.

Women Empowerment Training in Buleleng

       New Year is a new hope to everybody likewise with us. Therefore, we filled the activities in January with full meaning and of course accompanied by new enthusiasm. At the beginning of this month we made another fun trip to Buleleng as well provided training to increase the clove farmer wives in the health sector. Not wanting to lose with us they then show excitement to learn about woman’s health. In order to make the training easier and understandable for them we then formed several small groups for discussion. Apart from providing materials, this training was also interspersed with role play and games. In turn, they volunteered to come forward and explain to other mothers using flipcharts, breast props and also the brochures that we provided. They are very enthusiastic about spreading information to other women around their village. We are happy about this and hoping that in the future there will increase of healthy women because they have received information about women health.

               At the second week of January the Bali Regional Government issued a circular regarding the imposition of restrictions on community’s activities to suppress the spread of Covid-19. In response to this we then intensified educational activities by maximizing social media. Coinciding with National Nutrition Day, we held discussion with 8 of PE (Peer Educator) through WhatsApp group with the topic about Balanced Nutrition in the face of Covid-19. Even though they still could not meet face to face, the discussion was very exciting because they were very active in asking and answering the question we asked.

Commemoration of World AIDS Day by YRS
Commemoration of World AIDS Day by YRS

At the end of 2020, YRS carried out various interesting activities which involved not only the community around the market but also the wider community outside the market. Starting with the commemoration of World AIDS Day on December 1st, 2020, this was filled with the distribution of ribbons and the dissemination of information on HIV / AIDS. Through this activity, YRS team at the same time educated people in Badung market and Sanur Intaran market to adopt healthy lifestyle behaviors and avoid risky behaviors in the current situation of Covid pandemic -19.

Besides World AIDS Day, this December YRS also commemorates Mother's Day. YRS team distributed flowers to tough women who supported their families economics in Pasar Badung and Pasar Intaran Sanur. This beautiful flower is a form of appreciation and gratitude to mothers who are never tireless in educating and working hard for their children and families. Besides distributing flowers, YRS also held a charity bazzar by opening a booth at Geo Open Space, Kerobokan. We offer special snacks which are of course very suitable given to the most special figure, “Mother”. This special snacks can also be obtained by the general public by following a pre-order or coming directly to Geo Open Space. Our booth received a lot of enthusiasm from young and adults people. This moment was also used by YRS team to share health information as well as to promote YRS health services agenda. In addition, all profits from this fundraiser will be used to provide health services to women in traditional markets and remote areas of Bali.

In addition, YRS had the opportunity to share information about breast cancer with internal PT HM Sampoerna teams from several countries such as Switzerland, Italy, Turkey and China. The discussion was very exciting because all of the participants actively asked questions, and a few had just heard about the factors that can facilitate breast cancer. This session can help other women get the correct information about women's health, especially breast cancer.

2020 is certainly not an easy year for everyone, but 2020 offers many different lessons and experiences. Let's welcome 2021 and together build a bright future. Happy New Year 2021!

Assessment for Local Community in Rural Area
Assessment for Local Community in Rural Area

This month, YRS carried out different activities than usual. We made exciting trips to several villages in Buleleng, such as Gesing, Gobleg, Tinggarsari, Selat, Tamblang and Sidetapa villages. As a clove-producing area in Bali, these six villages offer clove trees that are shady and really beautiful. In this activity, we also carried out an assessment to find out the knowledge and concern of clove farmer wives towards the environment and women's health. We did not expect, there is a lot of life behind a slope that is really far and not easily accessible. From this assessment, we found that there were still many of them who had not been able to access information about women's health, some even got the wrong information because the distance to the nearest health service was quite far and it was difficult to access information via the internet due to limited signals. In addition, through this assessment, the YRS team become more enthusiastic and optimistic about providing medicals services and education because residents in this village still really need health information, especially women's health.

Another activity that we do regularly is a discussion with Peer Educator YRS (PE) through the WhatsApp group which is attended by 8 PEs. This month we discuss about Cervical Cancer. Although they did not meet face to face, YRS Peer Educators were very active in asking and answering questions during the discussion.
