Many disabled people on Lombok are sitting at home without employment. There are not a lot of businesses who want to hire them, because having a disability comes with a lot of prejudice on Lombok. Some people are afraid that the disabled are punished by God, others think they cannot do any meaningful work or that having a disability is infectious.
Harapan Baru Lombok helps disabled people find meaningful employment by creating micro-enterprises. We can help participants by finding internships with successful business owners, finding credit or investments for them, and supporting them with marketing and sales. We visit participants every week, to measure progress and support them where needed. Support a disabled person to become an entrepreneur to build a better future for themselves and their families.
For just 250 euro a year we can start a micro-enterprise every twelve months. We use your support to:
- Find a suitable internship for the participant.
- Give them the tools and materials they need to start their business.
- Offer them support through weekly meetings by a social worker and a micro-enterprise facilitator.
Our promise to you
Harapan Baru Lombok is a non-profit organisation. We guarantee that at least 90% of your donation will be used to support the disadvantaged on Lombok. If you support a participant, you will get regular updates on the progress that he/she makes.
